Strange behavior with upgrade to RH 7.3

  I finally had to do it: upgrade from Red Hat 6.2 to 7.3. This was, by far,
the worst upgrade ever, and I started with RH 4.1 in 1997. Had a linux guru
help me and it took us several days. Now, I'm trying to get things working
as the did before, but it's very slow going.

  For example, now I cannot move windows in Xfce, the control panel is a
plain, solid, light grey even thought the pallette shows the different
colors, and I can no longer cut and paste with the mouse from an aterm to,
for example, mozilla.

  Has anyone an idea what might be going on here? For some reason, I have
3.8.16 installed now rather than 3.8.18. I'm going to get that while I wait
for a response from you folks.
