Daniel >>> Thanks for your reassuring advice.  I've now tried the 
reconfig.  Sad to say, I still get the 'Your session has been saved' 
message when I click the log out button;  the proper log out screen does 
not appear;  instead, the shutdown wav file plays, the screen clears to 
the desktop image, and then the log on screen reappears.  Groundhog day! 
  I have to do a Ctrl+Alt+F1, and issue the sudo shutdown 0 command to 
get to a point where I can turn the computer off.

I think a reinstall may be the only solution.  :-(
