Well, when you do an upgrade we don't touch any .desktop files in your

I sometimes see that here as well, but it looks like some tray graphics 
corruption, I.E. if you exit the mixer, its only running one instance

Yea, it does have some initial startup cost, but usually calms down 
after a bit :) Of course you can manually disable it via system-settings 
-> advanced -> desktop search as well.
