Stefan, thank you, but you loose me. What is a "control window"? I'm 
running ediff in emacs. With the Mx-ediff command Emacs displays two 
vertical windows. One displays one file and the other window displays 
the other file. There is no "Ediff control window" that I can see.

I should note that I'm running Devuan (Debian without systemd) and I 
have no desktop environment.
