LOL.  What I was getting at, tho, was that I didn't know if it was 
running as kget or as, perhaps kdeinit kget or something similar, but 
your grep would take care of that, as long as kget was in the name.  But 
that's why I mentioned "could actually see what was running".

But there's also the possibility that the problem is in a library, 
perhaps loaded by several apps, or in the kded config infrastructure, and 
of course the easiest way to solve that, that is, to unload everything 
using that library, barring more information (like knowing which library, 
and what might load it) about the specifics, is to restart kde or even 
the entire computer.

Tooltips.  There's various places to turn them on for different apps, 
etc.  Perhaps what you're looking for is in dolphin's prefs, general 
section, behavior tab, second from the bottom option (in 4.3.3), show
