I haven't used Jarod's guide or FC2, but you should make sure that you
are not saving your previous session - I had this problem in the past.
In SuSE you need to go to Yast Control Centre -> KDE Components ->
Session Manager and select On Login - Start with an empty session
otherwise it will start up your previous mythfrontend sessions as well
as the one in the Autostart (quickly adding up to 7 :)
