Oh, I hadn't noticed that there was a deb for installing realplayer. I had
removed the whole lot, so just now I reinstalled all the 4.73 debs
including the realplayer, and guess what -- it works fine now. I don't
know why. I had been installing the realplayer with it's own installer,
not the rpm file that the deb wrapper uses.
Beats me why!
