Thanks for writing.  Where possible, I like to share /home with a user
of the same name from another distro (in this case Lubuntu).  This in
order to not duplicate files like data and browser cache.  But my
worry is that the settings for one distro might affect the settings
for the other.  So I have a different user for each, and symlink many
user directories from one into the other.

That's why Iceweasel didn't start.  I symlinked ~/.mozilla from the
Lubuntu user to the Exegnu user; after I removed that link, Iceweasel
started okay.

Will try the startupconfig change.  Looks like for now I'll have to
use Skype under Lubuntu.
