The wireless card in this machine is a dodo.  Non of the Linux 
distributions detected it !  After trying it in another machine, I've 
since discovered that M$ Win doesn't detect it either.

Yes reopening windows that were left open is as far as I am aware quite 
normal.  As far as GKrellm is concerned I run a single instance all the 
time and leave it running when I shut down, so I expect to see it when 
I start up.  I was suprised to see three instances running.  I do use 
three desktops though.
