now I'm embroiled in an involuntary kernel update which has resulted in
10 hours of teeth-gnashing and we ain't out of the woods yet :-(

See instructions and files here: https://github.com/Aris-t2/Scrollbars

Cool, no rush, enjoy Spectre/Meltdown protection (I'm guessing...)

My computer is pathological. We bought three identical sets of
components in 2011, of which we have two (linux) and a friend has one
(windows).  Mine has always been strange.  Sometimes in subtle ways,
sometimes in big honking nightmares -- like this kernel upgrade.  Hubby
did it to four machines in minutes. Mine took all day. All I can think
of is that there's some weirdness in the CPU or memory that just makes
stuff inexplicably work wrong. Every damn system update is a trip around

It IS possible you have some hardware bugs; computers and CPUs are so
complex today and the stuff is so small, I'm sure "Lemon" CPUs exist.

And in spite of several changes of monitor and graphics card, white is
always a pale cream color rather than white.  You'll have to take my
word for it that xmag sees this color as ffff ffff ffff, although it
sees it differently when I look at the new sample.


Looks white to me. Could be color correction in the OS; i.e. you change
the hardware, but Linux keeps correcting the color. have you tried
different ICC profiles? Not sure how this works in Linux, but I use a
custom ICC in Window, I grabbed it from http://www.tftcentral.co.uk.

Crap, of course it looks white! My original intent was to take a photo with my camera, which would show the strange color as ffff ffff ffff. Unfortunately I couldn't get a GOOD photo (moire patterns) so I used xv to save part of the screen. Dumb!

I'll try again tomorrow...

I had to look up 'ICC profiles'. tl;dr :-( If something is using one, it certainly didn't tell me!
