All these were solved by going back to Heron:

1) User sessions are not saved in GNOME.

2) Compiz crashed repeatedly on my main machine, each time requiring me
not only to re-enable it, but to re-enter all my settings as well.
Nvidia GeForce 8400 GS w/proprietary driver.

3) Ibex had no end of trouble recognizing which CD drive was which, and
often told me that I didn't have permission to eject the CD.

4) On my test machine, Ibex doesn't recognize that there's a floppy
drive on the machine. All of the dozen or so other operating systems on
that machine do.
