Its the "last_app" setting in ~/.jpilot/jpilot.rc

100 = Calendar
101 = Contacts
102 = ToDo
103 = Memo

It seems to be set when you exit jpilot. It sounds like you don't
normally explicitly exit jpilot when you shut your machine down, so
this might not normally be saved/changed... But at some point you have
exited jpilot, while using the memo application, and jpilot has
helpfully saved that setting...
