Will ensure I do this in the future.

Mouse and clock stopped moving.  Alt-Break did not work.  Had to use 
the reset button, to restart my A9home.

On it's way.

Just attempted to sign back in to Google Mail with Firefox Threaded2.
Firefox started to lookup the website, then quit.  At the same time 
Organsier 2.04 generated a "Sprite does not exist error", not logged 
in Syslog.

Stderr attached.

Will reboot and try again with Google Mail.
