It didn't happen on my home computer. This problem of not exiting may be an 
artifact of the particular installation, which is wierd because it is 
essentially the same I have at home.  OR, there is a spirit in the other 
machine that felt I really should have saved that stuff!

Both are Dell machines.  Both work with SuSE 9.2 and XFCE4.2.

I'll be gone for a couple of weeks.  So, don't hurry with the debug version.

Nothing fancy, nothing funky.  SuSE 9.2, ReiserFS for a file system, and one 
of the two machines (it happens on both, but not always ... a damned 
intermittence) has both Windows and Linux mounted.
