Yes, I tried reinstalling various theme and icon ports and their
dependencies for a while, even clearing out all the .gnome*, etc. dirs
in my home dir, but the problem persisted.

Overnight, I rebuilt *everything*, every port on the system (God, I
love this Athlon 64!).  All back to normal now.

Wish I could have pinpointed the exact cause of the problem to provide
some more useful feedback here, but I just got tired and resorted to
the sledgehammer approach.  :-)
