It's been a long time since I used KLibido on a 64 bits system, but this
behaviour sounds familiar. I can't remember why it happened though. Like you
said, it's probably running on the background but to be sure you could check
it with:
$ps aux | grep klibido

The first part (ps aux) lists your running processes and the second (grep
klibido) filters just the ones with the word "klibido" on them. If you see
Klibido, note it's Process ID (PID) and use the kill command to finish it so
it doesn't show up on your next login:
$kill PID

I have reinstalled the program using Adept (request purge, request install)

The purge option removes system wide configuration files but it would never
delete your personal settings. You may find Klibido's settings inside
$HOME/.kde/share/config/ and $HOME/.kde/share/apps/.

Hope it helps.
