  Why on earth didn't I think of that?  Thanks for the tip. Done.

  I didn't realize that Enlightenment was even a beta version.
Why is it installed as the standard manager with RH6.0 then?
Doesn't seem like a great choice, does it?

  Let me append a quick non-strictly-Linux-related hardware question,
if I may.  I have what I thought was a pretty good 17" Eizo monitor
(was Y 60,000 or so two years ago).  It seems to have developed a
serious defect: a right-left rapid twitching of a few millimeters,
that occurs sporadically, but is really maddening, of course.
Is this repairable or am I looking at a new monitor?  And if so,
what do you recommend - obviously another Eizo is out of the question.
