1) When I create a launcher, it will not let me select a custom icon


This is a bad addition to GNOME. It does let you select 4 icons from the checkmarks. This makes a quite ugly launcher. Why they changed it, I don't know!
It is an FC5 feature.


I don't know if there are any other issues, that's as far as I got.  Is
this symptomatic of something in particular?

It  is sort of a nautilus, metacity, screensaver type of "good idea"

Any suggestions, or am I better off just doing a complete re-install and
rebuild my user directories afterward, ie. Start all over.

It won't help with the missing icon for network device control or the launcher problem with selectable icons rather than checkmarking the available choices.


Regarding the network control not being in the menu by default, right click on any of the three menu headings and select edit menus. Under System tools you will find the network device choice where you can check the box and it will appear within Application system tools menu. The asked about new login choice is also selectable like someone asked about not showing on the menus by checking its check box.
