Thanks! I will try this, before I try the new version.

There's only one message but it doesn't look relevant to this:
org.eclipse.m2e.logback.configuration: The org.eclipse.m2e.logback.configuration bundle was activated before the state location was initialized. Will retry after the state location is initialized.
(emacs outputs a heap of GTk messages, though. But it comes up normally,
so that probably isn't relevant)

Ok I will try this and see how it works out. I will report back both
the results of both this version and the "-extension RANDR".
