AMEN to that! My Fedora boxes all installed full Gnome and KDE by
default, which I didn't mind because there's a few KDE apps I prefer
over Gnome's. Konsole being one of them. But sure as hell every time a
KDE app saw something odd enough to issue a warning about it would
launch Knotify and of course... artsd.

I had a script to "killall artsd-and-everything-like-it" handy for when
my sound suddenly went away. ;)
