When you  launch Kontact, check your email and your RSS feeds then close the
window and both of those applications will have icons loaded in your system
tray. Kontact as itself will not exhibit this behavior as it is a shell
program which interconnects several kparts, ie Kmail, KAddressbook,
Korganizer, etc which can all run as freestanding applications.

As far as loading on boot/login, I selected under the Advanced Settings in
System Settings > Session Manager > Load Previous Session. Then whatever
applications I leave running when I shutdown, will restart the next time I

Nope, this is a KDE specific thing - when you start the application for the
first time it creates a file in your home directory:
~/.kde/share/apps/korganizer/std.ics is where your tasks and events get
saved. There are specific default resource locations for each part of
Kontact which means that the default resource is not duplicated.

Your errors on the console have to do with built in support within Xorg for
people who use Wacom pads.
