Hi all,
   I notice that gconfd starts up on my machine even when I am not
running anything using GNOME.

  Strangely, the processed is owned by my userid but its PPID is init,
this really seems strange.

  Any ideas?

System info:

Debian GNU/Linux 6.0 (mostly stable with some packages from testing)
Kernel 2.6.32-5-686

pstree output:

     |           --enlightenment---enlightenment_f
     |                           +-firefox-bin---17*[{firefox-bin}]
     |                           +-mrxvt-full---2*[screen---screen---bash]
     |                           |            +-screen---screen---bash---pstree
     |                           |            --screen---screen---4*[bash]
     |                           +-mrxvt-full---8*[bash---ssh]
     |                           +-ssh-agent
     |                           --3*[tempget]
     |      |             +-hald-addon-inpu
     |      |             --6*[hald-addon-stor]
     |      --{hald}

Any insight would be appreciated!
