and thats probably why it comes back up again. one of 2 things.

1. if iconified - e will match the command line to the .desktop file - or
simply know that that .desktop file launched that app and thus running it again
if the window for that app is still there should simply bring that window up
again... or
2. paroli has its own session finding/handling so it finds the existing
instance of itself and ipc's asking it to show its window again - much like
firefox does or a whole bunch of apps these days can do.
