Mozilla works fine n dandy.

New install, no old stuff cluttering up the joint. I've done one RH update, 
which updated Galeon from 1.2.5 to 1.2.6. 

I have not heard of anyone else having this problem, my Celeron box runs fine, 
no glitches at all. I'm thinking it is probably something peculiar to this 
machine, I'm stuck on how to figure it out. System logs show nothing, and 
I've gazed at top until my eyeballs seized up. It is such a specific problem- 
only switching desktops and apps. Maybe some weirdo X thing?

Good thoughts, no cigar. :)
