    Well, I'm not supposed to; this started as a re-install of 8.0, and then upgraded only from apt.  I don't want to get too close to the bleeding edge again.

    $ rpm -q --requires gtk2|grep libXrandr

    Sam ding.  I dunno.

   No, I'm pretty careful about those; I've had that problem before. Any other ideas?
