Thanks. No I didn't know about upgrade-system. It's an old
installation, it's quite a while since I had a problem bad enough to
need reinstallation. Even so, the amount of cruft found was impressive,
more than 900 packages.
Unfortunately, it didn't fix any of my problems. But I don't use
Synaptic much, I know to boot into 188.8.131.52 not 184.108.40.206, and if I don't
look at the logs I don't see all the gtk3 error messages.... this *is*
sid, after all.
