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.

The javascript pages (bigbrother2000) also seem more stable with this

Beats me why!
