This issue probably won't occur if it is caused by kde's session restore 
feature. Although having said this, I normally want to run kde so that 
on normal shutdown it will restart running apps on reboot, but for 
situations where the shutdown is because of software crashes I don't 
necessarily want apps restarted.
