I tried to use Gnome back in the day (RH 7.3 or 9 or something - and no, I 
don't mean Fedora) but started with KDE under SuSE and have stuck with it. 
  Still don't like it even though I'd sure save me a lot of trouble if I'd 
just go along with the crowd.


Are there pkgs I can safely remove that might prevent this in the future 
(only seen it the one time)?
