	Well, that last is certainly good to hear; many thanks!

	The rest is over my head. I don't even follow why it is that ssh 
helps, alas!

	The same map program works fine on other F11 machines, under 
Wine. Does that not show, as I think, that the problem is specific to the 
T30 in some way??

	Can somebody translate it down to my level, suggest  how to test 
it, and what to do about it?
