At one time I had selected Mail to open automatically at start-up by
checking it in System Preferences/Accounts/Login Items. But now I
don't want it to, so have unchecked it. However, it insists on
continuing to open automatically at start-up/restart. What's going on
here?

Computer is a PowerMac G4, dual-processor mirror drive door
(PowerMac3,6), Boot ROM 4.4.8f2, running OS 10.5.8.

The checkbox merely determines whether or not it opens visibly. Select the Mail item in the list and click on the small '-' icon below that removes it from the startup items..
