What I'm believing now is that the problem is due to a(n apparently 
default) setting that was there from a previous version.  Somehow, it's 
screwing up the new version.  That's why existing users (default settings 
and not, both) have the problem, but a new user, all new defaults, does 

If that's correct, it explains the otherwise hard to explain bit about an 
existing default user having the problem, but a new (clean and thus 
default) user not having it.  So it fits the available evidence...
