When starting a new IceWM session a window opens that I can't close, this seems to be related to obmixer - which isn't displayed on the tool bar.  If I log out and log in most of the time the mixer is displayed.

I have an xsession-error message, don't know if this helps

Look in ~/.icewm/startup
Find the line for obmixer and comment it out.
Log out and back in.
Does the problem persist?

With it commented out the problem goes, just means I manually have to start obmixer each time by hand as it were... most annoying!

It may help to introduce a slightly longer delay before obmixer launches.

Look in ~/.icewm/startup
Right before the command to start obmixer, add a line:
sleep 5
experiment with different numbers and see if that helps.
