Well, the mouse-properties and keyboard-properties problem was caused by me
not specifying the --init option. Of course, there's still something wrong
here -- they did crash (presumably because they hadn't been init'd)

I just fired up XF86 on the linux box (I don't usually run X there -- the
serial port fries mice) and Panel at least starts and displays there. Dunno
what else it does, since I can't click.

Background-properties --init, however, still has the sigpipe problem and
hogs the cpu instead of completing its task.

I'd like to test this stuff properly (different color depths on xfree,
exceed and the other win95 x servers I have (quite a few)). But there are
some things I really need to work on if I'm gonna be rich and famous, so
this little update is all for now :-)
