It is, in a way, as by selecting "start with an empty session' you clear out 
whatever is set to run in that session, thereby removing Kontact from the 
setup , which somehow became 'stuck' thinking the session includes Kontact. 
Then, once you have a fresh clean session after a logout/login, you can re-
enable saved sessions. Afiak, this is the easiest way to clear out problem 

Now, if you also look at the session management section in System Settings, 
you can also very easily specify programs to be excluded from sessions
