Indeed I didn't, I like you, got bit by that famous "assume" word again.  
That mail was composed over about a 30 minute span while I was trying to 
figure out what heck an at-spi actually was.

Since that apparently is not its real name, its not obviously resident 
in /e/init.d, nor is it visible in the systemctl listings.  So other 
than sending it a SIGKILL with a root htop, I can't find a way to 
disable starting it.  Seemingly zero parents. But I haven't yet trolled 
thru /proc yet, been fighting with an amanda driver script I wrote 
probably 15 years ago. Somebody fixed a truly ancient bug in bash and 
broke a script thats been working for over a decade.
