Hi Adam
Thank you for the suggestion. However, from the list of files below reported I was unable to trace which process had launched kde. I opened kdeinit, klauncher, dcopserver, kded, kaccess, kicher, kgpg: all binary files.

From xinit
. /etc/X11/session I had already been unable to trace startkde.

Any suggestion from the list below as to where to look ?

Hi Francesco,
your listing of processes shows that the thread which originally spawned kdeinit has died. (Hence the parent thread = 1).

I recommend that you exit to the console and close X completely. Make sure that all processes pertaining to X have died, or kill them off. Stop gdm and disable it at boot-up (e.g. using sysvconfig for instance).
Then when your process list is clean, do startx and have a look at the processes again. If kdeinit's parent thread is 1 again, check that you killed it off entirely.

Hope that helps
