Question Ktorrent is "running" yet not visible , Help?

Ok, im using Kubuntu

, when i run ktorrent it it doesn't show on the desktop. (its not in its usual minimized form as a arrow in a corner its just not there) I have established that it is running by going into terminal - the result is that i am told it is already running.

Any help would be appreciated.

Well, you should be able to stop it with the command 'killall ktorrent'. However, that probably isn't much help if it behaves in the same way when you next start it up.
