OK, well, I can't close all open apps before logging out since I like my desktop to open with 4 terminal windows (2 in 2 workplaces), and I did that with a Save session. I can't believe this is the problem, though. I also tried doing both Redhat->Log Out and Ctrl+Alt+Backspace to leave X. Neither mattered. > Now note that in some applications your cursor will revert to the > default one when you're "over" a specific window.

I just can't find the problem. My permissions are 644 (755 in the case of index.theme), and I own everything. Is there some file I need to destroy somewhere? Get rid of a .Xdefaults or the like?
