  for the first time, trying to take some simple screenshots in my
pre-maverick (dist-upgraded) system and a couple observations.

  first, Alt-PrtSc is allegedly supposed to take a shot of the single
active window, but i don't see that it has any effect whatsoever.  is
this working for anyone else?

  also, from the menus, if i select Apps->Accessories->Take
Screenshot, that operation appears to work but i have no idea where it
would have stored the image -- there is no feedback whatever.
