Many thanks for the suggestion, but creating a file in /home/cr (and one in
/home) called .xinitrc, contents 'gnome-session', had no effect.
(And, looking at this old Woody setup that actually works, I don't seem to
have a .xinitrc anywhere :)
What I do get on trying to start X, is an error message
"X warning; process set to priority -11 instead of requested priority -10"
(I didn't see this before since it had scrolled off the top of the screen
earlier, till I removed an unfound font from XF86Config-4 and its error
How do I check and change priorities? - and why would dist-upgrade have
changed the priority anyway? (And, which 'process' might that be?)
