    Emacs running on its own


    I am having an odd issue. I installed emacs22 (non x version) a couple weeks ago and have notice that about 15 min after I boot my notebook, emacs will start to run on its own. It will use 100% of the cpu and access my HD (I can hear the drive). I can find no cron job that would cause emacs to start. Is this some emacs feature I am not aware of (preloading?)?? I don't know if it does this with every boot or not.

    Make a boot script that has:
    do
    lsof|grep emacs > BootScript
    if [$1 = "1" ]
    {
    xterm -e tail -f BootScript
    export 1=1;
    }
    loop

    This is a Pseudo script since I just cant remember the Bash Syntax.
    But well I guess you understant what I am going to.
    Check that out and then you can determin when emacs starts.
    Then we can check out why this happens..

    I managed to find the issue. It was auctex that was running it weekly.
