Well, now not even Gnome Terminal - starts up, but not at the same size
it was. I know about Firefox, etc - sort of had pious hopes that one
day it'd be sorted out :)
A possible solution would be to start up some apps at logon from Startup
Programs, and set their screen size/position. But I notice under Gnome
the window manager doesn't allow specifying a _Desktop_ to display
things on. Is there a window manager that allows you to do this? How
would I use a different window manager with Gnome?

Thanks for all your pointers Jeff, I appreciate it!

Nothing to be sorry about - one sets rather high expectations after using
Linux for a while :)
