Actually gtop and gnorpm were the only ones that appeared to have the esd
interferance pattern.  I didn't run strace on gtop but I expect that was it for
that one, too.

I started esd and xv worked okay fine but gtop gave me the broken pipe signal.

With esd killed, no problems with either gnorpm or gtop.

More a esd socket conflict problem, I think.

This has been happening for the last couple of different gtk's.

Also, I've had more problems with Enlightenment with panel applets crashing than in icewm, but I'll see if that goes away with the newest gtk.

Icewm seems to have regained its problem with same-gnome marbles/tokens not
going away with a single click on the spinning units, but otherwise is okay
