Application starts then disappears

view full story

http://forums.fedoraforum.org – The application is Conky running under Fedora 12 Alpha. This application is set to start upon logging in to the desktop and it does just that. It appears for a second or two and then disappears from view. Although I don't see it, top tells me it is in fact running. As a result of this unexpected behavior I kill the process and restart the application using the ALT/F2 run application tool. When I do this Conky appears on the desktop and stays in view. I don't understand what is happening here and am hoping that someone does and is willing to explain to me. (HowTos)
