"/usr/bin/app-restarter" is a programm that looks after the qpe process one line under it.
if this process dies out of reason. (try "killall qpe") the app-restarter shows you in the x-screen
the message you see in the "ps -ax" comand. and asks you if you want to restart it. 

so the message you see in the "ps -ax" is not an error. 

it is the parameter the programm app-restarter was given by the start. it's a litle bit confusing.
i also needed my time to work this out. it would be less confusing if the programm would get the message out
of a file and not from the parameter.  But it's ok if you know it.
