I commented out virtually everything, and got exactly the same result.  

I am wondering whether I should try 3.5.13 with Slavek's patches, but that is 
really the result of desperation!!  I am a little worried because this is not 
my computer, and I have never tried to use patches before.

It occurs to me to wonder whether a possible explanation is that I had tried 
to install 3.5.13 before and failed because of problems with the 
repositories.  I simply don't remember how far I got, if I got anywhere.

So I think I'll try that next, before I resort to tearing my hair out. :-(

Thanks again,
