Just recently this has started happening.
No other application do this.
output from xdpyinfo:
Discovered that old emacs servers/daemons are still running.
$ps ux | grep [e]macs richard 2642 0.0 0.8 38788 24984 ? Ss Jun22 0:25 emacs --daemon richard 7512 0.0 0.6 33896 19720 ? Ss Jun23 0:05 emacs --daemon richard 15458 0.0 0.6 32836 19076 ? Ss 09:40 0:01 emacs --daemon
Any one any ideas how these can be shut-down when I log-off?
Best to supply too much rather than too little info when asking for help/analyses. What's the recent history of the machine(s) in question? Software/hardware upgrade? Logging in remotely versus local? Happens on freshly restarted system versus one with long uptime? Maybe always works the first time but never subsequently? Does the "normal" (ie, non client/server) version of Emacs work? Maybe works when your .emacrs is renamed to be .emarcs.HIDDEN? etc, etc, etc...

I am not having this problem any more, it just went away. Maybe my behaviour has changed back to what it was before. I also have enough info to fix it if it happens again.
