Thanks so much Anton! Your succinct description got me a much closer knowledge. On my tiny bug demonstrator document, I used Vim to change lyxscale 50 to lyxscale 51, after which the file became stable in LyX. Interestingly enough, when I set it back to 50, it was still stable. So there's some kind of cache involved. When I reboot (for power savings I shut down every night), I'll see whether the 50 reverts to being unstable. At this point, for me, by far the easiest way to deal with this (I won't call it a solution) is to make sure no graphics are scaled 50% within the LyX environment. That's a whole lot simpler and less risky than tampering with my Qt4 version. Later, when I upgrade to Ubuntu K, qt4 will be upgraded for me. Thanks SteveT
