So whenever I restart my computer, korgc starts running and my system will
lock while it process, the hard drive light is constantly on, and things
are super slow until I kill the processes of korgc or korgc crashes.  Once
korgc crashes I am unable to launch programs and receive an error saying
DCOP can't find klauncher.
Any ideas on what  I can do to solve this problem?
