Getting rid of unused Gnome applications starting at boot (using KDE)

I just realised I have Bonobo, Nautilus and Evolution running at the background, eating over 110 MB and obviously increasing my boot time. This bugs me because I never use or have used them. I use Suse 9.2 and KDE but have Gnome installed for some random Gnome applications I might need every now and then.

How do I stop them from starting automatically? I'd rather leave them installed, there has to be another way. I just couldn't find how to do it...

I would do a
ps aux --forest
and see who's the father of those processes. It might help if you post the output of that here.
