*Almost*. exception was 6.5->6.6 upgrade.


Caveat: my assessment may be wrong in that it all works, but not the way
it used to, meaning things broke when I tried to use it the way I used
to use it, and I spent a great deal of time discovering some of the
underlying causes and my eventual work-around.

There was also a couple "not the way it used to" regarding X start-up
and an extra instance of Firefox being started, which I posted
"corrections" for in the form of patches to the scripts.

Based on my memory, as you may have seen in another thread, this was a
change from the past.
