When I open my sessions, I have 5 nm-applets running, I want one

Asked by Paul Dufresne

Now, every time I open my sessions, I have 5 nm-applets that appear.
This began yesterday, the network-manager bug day, which I participated.
The only thing I see is that I have started, and stop NetworkManager.

paul@paul-desktop:~$ dpkg -l | grep network-manager
ii network-manager 0.6.5-0ubuntu17 network management framework daemon

I first thought it was because I had activated 'Automatically remember running applications when logging out' in System/Preferences/Session, but then I disable it, killed the nm-applet, then, push 'Remember currently running applications' in session window, then try to log out then log in, but the 5 applets where back.

I need help to get rid of the 4 (in excess) nm-applets for good.

Well, I have edited my .gnome2/session file (I am on Hardy).
Commenting out (appending #, not sure it is ok at all), but it seems to work.
I had tried before in System/Preferences/Session, current session to remove the nm-applet there, but it was coming back on next logon.
I have also uncheck in System/Preferences/Session, Startup programs tab, NetworkManager.
Not sure it was necessary.

paul@paul-desktop:~$ cat .gnome2/session
