    heh, heh.

    One should not always assume that someone will instinctively know this until they try to remove the first lug nut!

    These da*n computers are supposed to see/do anything you want ( ha ha ah )
    but they still need us nerds to find the bad bits..........


    All the best.

    Thanks for all the suggestions. (Yes, I did know to move things around from the console, although the system has a distressing tendency to go into sleep mode if not running an X session.)

    Rather than try and debug any further, I've just shifted all my data to a new login and then built up the configuration essentials. (Since I've got something like 20 years worth of files lying about the place, some tracing back to old solaris systems, trying to work out what's what was a bit daunting. Just configuring what I need right now is a bit easier) Everything seems to be happy now and I'm letting sleeping dogs lie.
