Yes, Richard, apparently I had work habits based on the RedHat setup,
and didn't realize that under debian I'd have to add root to the
access control list.

My next question has to do with disabling screen blanking and power
saving under X. This also may be the result of moving into a somewhat
different setup when I moved from RedHat to debian.

I had added to ~/.Xclients:

  xset s off 
  xset -dpms

But now that is having no effect.
