Could be.  Xorg.log does not disclose anything, perhaps I need to set the debug level higher.  Generally it dumps this stuff to console and there is a clear chain reaction (apps disappear one at a time suddenly) but balsa (or gkrellm...) is always first, and it is my impression that this does not happen when balsa is not running.  

Keep in mind, as I said, my environment is very "non-standard" and did involve forcing some packages because the dependencies were source built (and probably not the same way as the corresponding package) so there is ample room for any number of complications.  Which that is my problem more than yours!

Anyway, for now I am trying out sylpheed (gasp! sorry...) as it has fewer dependencies and was not intended for gnome integration, which is something I neither want nor need.  But thanks for balsa, up to now it has served me well for years!

BTW, if 2.4.1 is the latest version, why does this homepage:

list (and supply!) 2.3.28 as the latest stable release?
