[Nottingham] Gnome(s) ate my Desktop

Last night, I was trying to run 'GRip' to Rip a CD into MP3s. For some
reason when the app had started, a 'nautilus' desktop appeared and subsumed
my KDE desktop! Even worse than that, my session was saved when I logged out
so the nautilus desktop was loaded again every time I logged in!

I managed to track down the problem eventually to a file (hidden away in the
'.kde. directory) that contained my saved session, and I had to manually
change it to remove that offending lines, but I'm interested to know how on
earth this could happen in the first place . .  and has anyone else come
across strange behaviour like this?
