Ah, thanks. I'll se if that worked next time I reboot.

Meanwhile, that inspired me to actually search the bug database for my
xlib issue, not just flailing about ineffectively on google.

It turns out there's a report
( https://launchpad.net/distros/ubuntu/+source/firefox/+bug/70872) that
implicates firefox in the issue. And lo and behold, if I close down
firefox and restart it the problem disappears. So the stopgap solution
is to not have firefox running for more than a week or so at a time. I
can live with that.
