Hi Michael, Adam, Grzegorz,

Thanks for your replies!  If it's known to be a problem with some Ubuntu 
package I won't start posting crash output from the terminal or 
anything, and perhaps this explains the conflicting views if Adam is 
also using (k)ubuntu?  Actually, I think it's about time I took a look 
at Gusty anyway...
