And a third item for the list:
After just rebooting a few times trying various tactics for solving
the first problem above (without success, BTW) when I booted it last
time the GUI desktop comes up with empty panels. The panels are there,
there's just nothing visible on them. I can click on the panel in the
spot where something ought to be, and it is there--the menus open,or
whatever was supposed to happen, and they have visible text--it's just
the panels that are blank.

I should note that I'm using "desktop effects" with an old nvidia
card, in case that matters.
