Thanks Xian.

Well.  What an interesting evening.  I had been planning on moving my 
video capture card out of that box for a while.  I did it this afternoon 
and the error message went away.  My sound works again (it had been dead 
for a while) but there didn't seem to be a sound associated with gedit.

I noticed some extra noise out of a fan while I had the case off.  Then, 
about a half hour ago, the power supply went.  Quite impressively too. 
Good flash of light, a zapping noise and that telltale smell of fried 
electronincs.  If it's just the power supply, I won't be too upset.

I guess I'll be picking up a new p/s tomorrow.  This should be a good 
test for the ext3 filesystem.  :-)
