Oh, thanks for the correction.

Most often that would be an xterm with Privoxy running in non-daemon 
mode. After a while the xterm goes "poof" and disappears with the 
Privoxy process still running in the background. Maybe that is part of 
the reason...

OTOH I'm almost sure there also have been auto-reboots when nothing 
special was (apparently) running. I'm going to try and confirm this over 
the weekend by manually rebooting to the default state and watching what 
happens if I don't use it over the next 48 hours...

Thanks for your help,
