GNOME has a thingy for stopping such applications to start with the
user's session. It seems to mainly copy the .desktop file to
~/.config/autostart and add a line with X-GNOME-Autostart-enabled=false.
Surely KDE has a similar feature (both a dialog box for choosing which
applications to start, and a custom property to overrid the autostart).
