Yes, killing oafd enabled idle to start with subprocesses.
This is what was running:
oafd --ac-activate --ior-output-fd=12
It did not restart. Based on the man page, its for CORBA, Orbit, OAF
and/or Bonobo. Since I don't know what any of those are, I'm not sure I
need it. Can you elaborate?
Does killing oafd shed any light on what the problem with idle really
