cool, thanks -- I just commented it and added xfce4-iconbox under it.
Still, a gui way to make the choice would be great.

I'm getting all giddy again, this is a nice environment now that I've
found ways to customize it. I particularly like something that I think
is gtk2-related, which is the fact that it picked up Galaxy as a theme
choice. Since I'm using Galaxy with KDE and Gnome too, it's doing that
whole everything's-got-the-same-theme thing that we all like. In fact, I
think I'm gonna go try to find Galaxy skins for gkrellm and xmms :-)
