I should know better to leave well enough alone: HOWEVER. old habits (as a beta tester) are hard to break.

... as a test, I reverted to "netbook" and got the following error:

An error occurred while loading or saving configuration information for netbook-launcher. Some of your configuration settings may not work properly.

Failed to contact configuration server; some possible causes are that you need to enable TCP/IP networking for ORBit, or you have stale NFS locks due to a system crash. See http://projects.gnome.org/gconf/ for information. (Details - 1: Could not send message to gconf daemon: Message did not receive a reply (timeout by message bus))

/REM I wonder if this might relate to processor speed, since the intial reporte of this bug is using an Asus 900, whereas my machine is the newer Asus 1000. Hyperthreading is turned on by default in the BIOS.

When I booted back, the netbook interface was available, WITH the classic was also visible in the background. I easily reverted to the classic look. Now, though the 'compiz' toolbar which looks like the OS/X toolbar is now on the desktop behind the bottom launcher.

However, none of the icons in the 'compiz' toolbar work.

... taking my *own* advice: if it works, don't fsck with it! L0)
