fluxbox starting apps twice on startup


Hi,

Just upgraded to Mandriva 2006 (lots of probs there.. but that's another story).

Before the upgrade Fluxbox was starting applications via the ~/.fluxbox/startup file twice.
I have tried rewriting this, starting from different files (~/.fluxbox/newstartup), reinstalling fluxbox, and now even upgrading distibution. It's still duplicating applications on startup.

Does anyone have any ides why this could be happening?

Thanks

Don't use ~/.fluxbox/startup, instead use ~/.fluxbox/apps with syntax like :

Code:
[startup] {xsetkeylock num on}
[startup] {idesk}
[startup] {fbpager}
[startup] {xscreensaver}

I've tried using the apps file, but every time i edit it, then reboot, the file changes to it's original state, so essentially I'm unable to modify that file. I have no idea why it's doing that either! I'll try to figure it out... I suppose it might explain stuff.

Thanks for the prompt reply.
