Well, I got it running again - from the command line. And read for maybe 
five minutes... and then audacity literally ate my system. Cursor 
disappears on and off, minutes to do anything, and I couldn't kill it, 
because it the window xterm took far too long to respond. I had to push 
the physical button, and power cycle the system.

Now to find something else to use to record a voice.
