Knowing what type of program or programs is open each time wouldn't
hurt. Knowing specifically which ones... ok, yeah, I know... the list
could become seemingly endless. My thought process is that maybe
certain ones or combinations of certain genres/families are calling
something up that causes this.

Knowing any personal tweaks done at installation wouldn't hurt, either..

Or knowing things like what I just did LITERALLY ten minutes ago... 2
different versions of the same browser. One's installed via
apt/apt-get... the other manually installed by extracting to /tmp then
certain files were renamed and/or their textual content altered in an
ATTEMPT to prevent conflict before copying over to /usr/*.

Total smooth move that's destined to go quite swimmingly. Am
contemplating opening both at the same time to get today's party
started off with just the right bang-fizzle.. *cues downward spiraling
