Must be an accident. I had my buttons set to the right (using
gconf-editor) in Ambiance theme, click & change to Clearlooks & buttons
are to the right, change back to Ambiance & they now revert to the left
(close, minimize, expand), change back to Clearlooks & they are on the
right again, back to Ambiance & on the left again.

Thanks Fred, now I have to go back and modify Ambiance again in
gconf-editor... :-(
