It happened again, and I tried to kill totem through "top", but it kept 
saying "no such process ID", so I fired up the Process Monitor GUI and 
was unable to kill it from there, too.  It appeared to simply re-spawn 
with a different PID (?).  So, I uninstalled it:

However, I kinda need it, or mplayer, or something.  I'll try mplayer to 
see if it has a similar interaction with wget, download helper and 
flashgot.
