Woo hoo!  I think I finally just fixed this irritating problem - with a
similar solution.

Eventual fix (I think) was uninstalling an old copy of neatx (Google's
clone of nx) that I had hanging around.  Neatx had placed a file in
/etc/ld.so.conf.d, which I'm guessing was what was messing things up.

What a relief!!!

Thanks for the help, all.
