A day or two later, and my desktop is still
behaving strangely. When I choose GNOME themes, the application window decorations (inside the windows, not the title bar) are not showing up, instead defaulting to Bluecurve. Even stranger, if I run the Gimp, it does
show the full decoration!
Maybe this is significant: I ran a "ps aux | grep vnc", and got this:
tim 6263 0.3 1.2 7992 6220 ? S 17:38 0:01 Xvnc :1 -desktop
X -httpd /usr/share/vnc/classes -auth /home/tim/.Xauthority -geometry 1024x768
-depth 8 -rfbwait 120000 -rfbauth /home/tim/.vnc/passwd -rfbport 5901 -fp unix/:7100
Why VNC has decided to run at 1024x768, I have no idea, as my native res is 1280x1024 - could this be why I'm finding my desktop rearranged for no apparent reason?
Hope someone can help - I'd rather not get rid of VNC altogether, but I will if these desktop hassles keep up!
Thanks for any help...
