I have for a long time used the option too load a previously saved session, 
and it's always been fine until this problem started up.  About the same time 
I found that it always started with kmail opened - and I always use kontact, 
so I can't imagine how that happened.  However, closing it and saving the 
session didn't cure it.  An hour or two ago I decided to set it to Empty 
Session for the time being.  We'll see how it goes.  If the worst comes to 
the worst I can use other computers while I reinstall this one.  It may prove 
too difficult to find the damage and correct it.
