also xchat has asked for killall5.
I think I found this one. /bin/pidof is a symbolic link to /sbin/killall5. So programs that find /bin/pidof and follow the link rather than just calling 'pidof' will find themselves calling /sbin/killall5. My first instinct now is that this is harmless and it's the program trying to find a PID. Hopefully not its own, C has getpid() for that...

Check out this post over at Novell's forums and see if that applies to you. null-complain-profile is used in learning mode, it complains about absolutely everything.
