Jim and Ian: you are both right with respect of me unwittingly using
Gnome applications. When I did "ps-e | grep gnome" I saw more
processes than I expected.

I have uninstalled polkit-gnome, ibus* (even though there was no
process with ibus in the name), Gnome Control Centre and a few others.

I am still keeping 3 programs that use Gnome libraries or are
affiliated with the Gnome project because I use them a lot: Tomboy
(note taking), Gnome Mplayer (to play music inside Seamonkey and
Firefox) and Geany (for small source-editing jobs).

In any case, as I said before the issue manifests after an apparently
random time after login, so there could be an hidden obscure bug
