Could be part of my disk is trashed. I logged into Gnome as a test (didn't 
like the lack of desktop icons, another reason I don't use KDE any more!) 
and got notification of a hard drive error. I'm working on getting a new 
hard drive, so hopefully I'll be up and running 100% in a few days. Might 
have to do a refresh install of xfce4 or something and see if that helps.
