No symptom change.  If it is a clue, the "Exit" button does not
give me the "reboot", "shutdown", etc. options.

I suppose 4.4.1 would go a long way to help such things,
but even thought 4.4 is on Fedora Core 6, Red Hat is still
debating whether or not to xfce to Enterprise 5.
(Why is the world would anyone want to run a big, bloated
GUI on an "Enterprise" server is beyond me, but ...)

Many thanks,
