    3 nm-applets??? Please help

    i had three nm-applets running in my mythbuntu install. I am using the rt73 from serialmonkey. Since the networking is a /etc/init.d/ service which parses the interfaces file I realized that I didn't even need network-manager because I don't use WPA. All the nm-applets were in the upper right corner of the upper panel. I dealt with it since mythbuntu came out but grew very tired of seeing it. I removed the network-manager-gnome and now I am getting an error once in awhile stating that nm-applet can't continue because of resources aren't there anymore. Can someone tell me how to fix this. I should have grabbed a screenshot of the error but I didn't. the last time the error popped up I was trying to go to site within firefox and the computer kind of froze, even the terminal that I had open, I couldn't close firefox or the terminal. just before pushing the power button to restart the machine, I tried ctrl-alt-f2, and sure enough, there was the command line box thingy. so I entered sudo killall firefox-bin and it shut firefox and there were the 3 errors on top of each other that I couldn't see when firefox was frozen. Internet and networking is still working so I just need to figure out how to get mythbuntu to stop trying to use nm-applet. it's not showing within ps aux and the network-manager isn't installed. Not sure what to do? Any help please.

    UPDATE: I think I may have just found it, under Applications, Settings, Autostarted Applications. I have unchecked the nm-applet. Let's see if that does but would like feedback from others. Thanks

    UPDATE: I didn't shutdown yet as I am recordings shows currently but the error came up again. I have attached a picture of the error.
