Interesting. The 15:29 checkin by marcus said "The warning about running
as root first is no longer needed since the hack seems to work", so I
didn't try it again. He was, apparently, wrong.

Now, when I start it via sudo (rather than a "su -" and an exporting of
the display), it starts up just fine. After a "chown -R" of the .mozilla
directory to me, it starts fine as my userid, too.


Thanks, everybody, for the replies! I really appreciate it.
