Hmm ... Meanwhile, however, back at the ranch, the problem has not recurred this afternoon -- not since I gave up my nice pipe display on the screensaver. Otoh, neither have I yet seen the new one running. (It's behind a KVM switch, in case that matters, btw.) If/when it does recur, I'll change again. And report. I delight in screensavers, and swap them often. Stay tuned. -- Beartooth Staffwright, PhD, Neo-Redneck Linux Convert Remember I know precious little of what I am talking about.
