Nope, I already tried the obvious. Sorry, I should have said so :-)

I've had quite a few adjustments to make myself. To the point that
I am thinking about downgrading the system to testing, or possibly
even installing SuSE or Mandrake. I like Debian on my server, but I
think I might be happier with another distro for my workstation.
Then again, I'll probably change my mind once this problem is fixed.

I don't think the world needs another market dominated by Microsoft. I have
enormous respect for the company, but I really get nervous about markets
where one vendor has such power.
