Gwibber ignoring preferences and running at login

Bug Description

In Ubuntu 11.10 I have unchecked the Gwibber option to run at login.

However when I login Gwibber does run. It is not listed in the startup applications list, and in the notification area two instances of Broadcast are listed. One which has the arrow beside the name and expanded with the 'Update status / Messages / Replies / Private' options listed. The second listed instance of Broadcast does not have the arrow and does not show the expanded options.

In system monitor three instances of gwibber-service are listed (ID 3143, 3142 and 3126 respectively)

Unistalling unity-lens-gwibber removes the second instance of Broadcast in the notification menu

Now Gwibber will not start automatically at login with the option checked. Can manually add to the start-up applications list.
