Update Applet insists on running with every gnome login, resume from suspend or resume from hibernate

Description of problem:
Update Applet insists on running with every gnome login, resume from suspend or resume from hibernate despite setting check for updates daily in gpk-prefs. This is insanely irritating as it causes my hard-drive to grind away and a virtual machine lock-up for a few minutes every time - just when I want to get down to work!
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
gnome-packagekit-0.3.13-1.fc10.i386 : GNOME PackageKit Client
Every gnome login, resume from suspend or resume from hibernate
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Login or resume
2. That's it
Very tiresome Update Applet action

So, yes perhaps.
Mine says this:
Should be fixed in rawhide, right?
