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 
message stopped)

How do I check and change priorities? - and why would dist-upgrade have 
changed the priority anyway?   (And, which 'process' might that be?)
