Strange behavior with upgrade to RH 7.3

No offense, but thinking that doing that huge of an upgrade would end 
well was not a good idea.

You should have backed up your data, and installed 7.3 from scratch.

Did you build XFCE from source, or attempt to install an RPM?  I'd say 
your only hope is to build from source, since i'm guessing that youv'e 
got some fairly screwed up libs at this point.  As for cut/paste, does 
it work at all, or just not between aterm & mozilla?  Is your mouse 2 or 
3 buttons?
