I don't need a test to prove that!  it is certainly the case.  I have
seen my files! In fact, I had decided on a complete reinstall next
week, and am relieved to find that merely deleting .trinity might
work, for considerably less effort!

But I had not realised that these particular problems were due to
that.  Anyhow, if it were a bug, it is as likely in LXDE or Squeeze as
in Trinity - and then there is always PEBKAC.

I really can't do much until next week, but I shall try your
suggestions.  I could do with access to my KMail before Gmail drives
me totally insane.
