Thanks Marianne. I have Cooker installed but not as my main OS. The
symptoms seem identical to the Xubuntu issue. It is indeed restored
after logging out and in again. That too sounds like the Xubuntu cause.
I have a few other minor issues with Xfce, but at first sight, none
seems related to this one, so I will post about them in separate
threads. I don't want to go back to KDE if I can avoid it.
On second thoughts, if there is a crash happening, every so often I see
Xfce run my CPU at full tilt for about a minute. That was one of the
things I was going to ask about. It may be a good opportunity for
something to crash - or it may even be caused by a crash!
