I'm currently doing a more or less complete sysem rebuild (I think) in
order to be sure there aren't any hidden quirks that might have
survived.  I've encountered weird behavior like this before with the
evolution email client - it eventually went away, but I was never sure
what did it.  I'm not so patient where gcl/axiom/maxima are concerned

I'm 99% sure it's not the kernel - I've been using the same 2.4 kernel
ever since I finally got lmsensors working.

I doubt I'll run into that, but if I finally do a full system reinstall
I'll keep it in mind.

Ah - now that's a good idea :-).  I did try gdb, but forgot to do
enable debug.  No wonder there was so little information available :-).
