I described a problem in which a user lost the
ability to use the menu (right) button in xace
and some other X11 programs. In response,

She tried logging in and toggling NumLock and it
did restore the menu button. Thanks.

The bizzare thing is that the NumLock setting should
be 'remembered' by her account, from session to 
session. One of the first experiments we tried
was replacing her .login, .profile, .cshrc files
and .dt (CDE-desktop) directories, with no
effect. They should cause things to revert to 
more 'standard' conditions, when the user logs in.
