Check the $HOME/.kde4/share/config/session folder. This is where session info is found. You should find a file with kate in its name. Deleting that file should solve your problem.

closed kate, konsole and other kde apps still running

Even when you close these "zombie" ( I know, they're not really , but they come back after you remove the session stuff !! ) session processes they are still running.

Check out ksysguard and you'll find many of these items with a "-session 1235abcxxxxx..." argument.

Remove the session files ( from .kde4/share/config/session/ ) , kill them then log out and in again.

They're gone !!

I don't know if this is a feature or a bug ... it'd be nice to have some more effective control over them.

Maybe in kde4.2 !?!?!
