If in fact your problem is related to the installation of one of your current 
packages, the problem is most likely in one of the configuration files.  
Re-using the current configuration files would most likely just re-install 
your problem.

I haven't been following this thread very closely, so I don't have any good 
recommendations on what to do, but if you think you need to re-install, take 
care not to re-install your problem with the old configs.
