Yeah thats true the update-notifier ist starting in the background and
checking if updates are avaiable. Just remove the update-notifier or
disable it in autostart would fix this.
I am experimenting with a simply zenity shell script which will do
almost the same as update-notifier, but I am still not sure if I can
have it use less than 10 MB.
