Look in /Library/StartupItems and in ~\Library\StartupItems (if they exist). Anything in those?
Also... do you have an iPod or iPhone plugged in when you login? If iTunes is set to automatically sync those devices, then perhaps that's the trouble.

iTunes comes up here with both Tiger and Leopard as I have an iPod connected and iTunes always auto loads to sync with it. That can be stopped from happening by clicking on the First item in the Devices Menu. Uncheck "Open ITunes when iPod is connected".
