Yup. That's what I did (and put an old CRT in place of the LCD -- gotta 
swap that back today sometime) and it got me going.

The thing I noticed is that one account showed more screen resolutions 
than the other, and one account had normal video while the other didn't. 
Since there's only one xorg.conf, kde must be storing something 
somewhere. I'd still like to find out what and where...

Many thanks
