Found the problem, after that microsd write was finished I clicked on 
another link in an email from a trusted source, then sat and watched htop, 
where eventually I could see that kdeinit was making a valiant try to 
launch 10,000 copy's of Konqueror.  Killed that session of kdeinit and 
eventually they all went away, but I had to do it 3 times before it stayed 
killed, kdeinit is part cat maybe?

Then I fired up synaptic and nuked anything konqueror related.

System happy now.  A pox on folks who think _their_ SW is the latest and 
greatest and sets it up to intercept your defaults.  For folks like that, 
I've got a 3 foot length of white ash 2x2, no padding anyplace.  And it is 
a wee bit used...

Cheers, Gene
