That's what I got.

Uh huh

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.

I wish I could note this, I really do.

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?

Thanks, though,
