How to prevent gpilotd running?
 
I seem to have provoked gpilotd into always running on my system, how
can I stop it? I presume it got installed with Evolution but it seems
odd to run it regardless, I don't have a Palm PDA any more.

One way to have started it would have been to go to System -->
Preferences --> PalmOS Devices and filled out the information, and
then (as you note) it will run every time you log in.

I believe the easiest way to stop it is to find gpilotd using System
--> Preferences --> Sessions and either un-check or delete it.

I looked there and couldn't see it, I managed to stop it by the direct
method, I removed it using synaptic! :-)
