Ooops. Les,
	getting Gnome working on the console fixed the problem of gray X for VNC
sessions and for the terminals. I am truly sorry that I've neglected to
write the amended post. Yes, you -were- right :-)  Hearty thanks!

	I am still baffled by the connection - why does the fixing GDm on
console help the terminals and by the actual event - why did a functioning
system suddenly stopped working when there were -no- changes done to
software.
