Alex, thank you for the quick reply.

nothing there.  The only directory under ~/.gconf/ is apps.  But I remember I
*do* have used that gnome GUI thing in the past.  If only I knew where to go to
get rid of the changes it made.

OK, I will.  It is only that when I tried to carry over my previous xorg.conf
things where even worse than with an empty xorg.conf.  I'll try out a few
things and report back.

not there yet, but after things are fixed, I'll stay away from the Gnome
applet, I promise.
