On my Stretch LXDE machine it appears under menu "Prefernces" >

If I disable it, then a file appears under ~/.config/autostart called
at-spi-dbus-bus.desktop which contains...

[Desktop Entry]
Name=AT-SPI D-Bus Bus
Exec=/usr/lib/at-spi2-core/at-spi-bus-launcher --launch-immediately

That last line I guess overrides default startup behaviour.

Using "find / -name at-spi-dbus-bus.desktop" I see the default desktop
file in /etc/xdg/autostart/at-spi-dbus-bus.desktop, which has the same
contents without that last NotShowIn=LXDE; line.
