	Hmm... I'll try that -- but it seems strange. Wasn't the whole 
point of making yum choose mirrors to spread the load??

	That launches system-config-display -- precisely the app I had 
been trying so stubbornly to get, because for some unimaginable reason I 
didn't have it on that machine.

	I did get it just now; launched it; ran it; and the display is 
still not entirely right, but it's a *lot* better. Resetting the colors 
for each profile in gnome-terminal helped, too.
