No, I haven't, Daniel. It works quite O.K. under Windows.  It must be a
corrupted file somewhere in my O.S.  It works perfectly under Mandriva07 beta 
as well.  It doesn't share any directories.  Logging in as
a different user, in case it was something in my /home, made no difference.  
It will be something strange, whatever it is.

If computers get too powerful, we can organize them into
