Finally found the offending program. It was the plasma thing. Got it 
turned off by digging around in the desktop cashew thingy. Got an error 
message that Plasma had crashed. That's how I knew what it was. Didn't 
exactly crash, I killed it off. Hope it doesn't come back when I reboot.

Still a couple other things I'm not impressed with but maybe I can live 
with them till I figure out how to fix them.
