Thanks for the idea. It works if I'm root.
The problem is not solved, though. I don't know about the video driver
(nvidia's latest) as a possibility, except that it had to be some other
package being updated, making it incompatible with the driver. Things
worked before the upgrade, without a switch in the driver (I roll my own
when it comes to those...).
