First, thanks for the help, Dave.  I agree with your selinux eval, but
though I should try it as more stuff is including it now. Unfortunately, I
am writing again...

More evidence.  Selinux disabled, firewall disabled (server is behind
another firewall anyhow).  Impress still crashes with same symptoms at a
thin client.  It runs fine from the console and through VNC.

Any suggestions?
