	I should've read all responces evidently!  Giorgos, can 
	I (dare I, can/should I) put my miscellanous commands into
	.xinitrc, or are these simply ignored by the parser?
	Also: can I use .xsession instead of .xinitrc?  --I have
	several non-Gnome apps placed at various X+Y locations... 

	great tips!
