Thanks Marco - yes you were right - the machine was fully updated but
I had not rebooted - after a reboot desktop effects in the second
machine do work flawlessly now!

Excellent work by the devel team - thank you.... I am really happy
with my two machines running f16 now - and will install on a couple
more in the next couple of weeks....

Great stuff.
