Lightbulb icons in the gnome splash screen


I'm using RHEL4.
i want to change or disable the icons appearing at the bottom of the splash screen after the user logs in.
i know how to change the splash screen or even disable it.
when i change the splash screen image, the icons still keep coming over it when it is being displayed.

any ideas??

ok, i have made some progress

the icons appearing on the splash screen are of the applications that are started by the session manager. you can find them in applications -> preferences -> more preferences -> sessions under the current sessions tab.

try disabling some appls e.g eggcups and you can notice the printer icon wont be visible in the next logon.

but i still can't figure how to disable them or change them (icons).
