Gimp starts automatically with kubuntu 14.04 kde


I installed gimp, and now it starts automatically with every boot. I've checked the autostart and nothing, and I checked gimp preferences too. I don't know what I'm missing.
If I did this right, I attached two screenshots

In your second screenshot, there is the settings panel "session management". As far as I remember, KDE by default saves the session and restores it on next login. This might include running programs. Maybe something got confused and saved the "running" state for gimp but does not erase it when you logout without gimp running. What happens when you put the session management to "start with a clean session"?
