I looked and none of the OO apps has quickstart checked.  Under 
system-->preferences there is a Startup Applications entry.  I checked 
it and nothing related to OO seems to be there.  It seems to be ( for 
lack of a better term) high level, there must be something lower down 
that starts these processes. Unfortunately I haven't used Ubuntu long 
enough to know what it is.

Thanks,  Jim
