I just reinstalled with a 4.8 mini-iso that I d/l'd back in the summer 
iirc. Maybe this helps explain some of the issues I've been plagued with 
(not including a touch of dandruff, which is more likely due to the cold 
weather here).

This is really just a learning experience for me right now, though use of 
the word 'just' seems really lame. Point is that it may be wise for me to 
d/l the latest release level mini-iso and reinstall from that. Eventually I 
may even learn what I'm doing, though I tend to doubt it.
