Small glitch: I tried to log out, and got rebooted instead -- to
some bad state where I had to reboot again, into init 3. From there I
used startxfce4 again; I may edit my grub.conf (or whatever serves as one
now) to make the init 3 permanent. I don't think I've needed a startx
command since the early days of RH7; I'd all but forgotten it existed.
