Weird, but I'm just reporting what I see on my system ...

I'm aware of that. Again, I'm just reporting that after logging back in,
another instance for each will be started.

It's on my system at home. I've configured the startup for GNUstep to NOT
probe the network, there's no firewall, as I'm not connected. Networking
per se is doing fine, so I figure it's a problem with HOW I launch GNUstep,
that is gdomap, gdnc and gpbs.

The funny thing is, no matter how many instances of gdnc and gpbs
eventually run, everything is working fine (that is, DnD etc. works)

Btw. in any of the given scenarios, there will be only one instance of

gdomap is started during system-startup. When a user logs in, the ~/.xinitrc
(~/.xsession) fires up gdnc and gpbs as

    if [ `gdomap -L GDNCServer | grep -c Found` = '0' ];

    if [ `gdomap -L GNUstepGSPasteboardServer-sol | grep -c Found` = '0' ];

"sol" being my machine's name. And yes, NSHOST is set in NSGlobalDomain.

If I move those lines above to GNUstep's startup script, both WILL be launched 
(running with UID 0) - but as soon as I try to launch any
GNUstep application, a new instance of gdnc and gpbs for that user will
get launched as well.

gdomap is launched as

  PREFIX=$(expr $0 : "\(/.*\)/etc/rc\.d/$(basename $0)\$");


  ${GNUSTEP_SYSTEM_ROOT}/Tools/ix86/freebsd/gdomap -a ${IFFILE}

gdomap_if contains a single line:

:0> gdomap -N
Registered names are -

Any ideas?
