Agreed on all of the above.  If it hadn't happened 3 times I wouldn't 
have worried.  One thing though hasn't happened since Sunday and the 
last install I did I intentionally left OMWeather and Xournal off.  

It is blanking after a reboot and the first sign of problem is that 
the lock panel coms up as a white square with numbers. (nobuttons no 
colors) Then when it starts the left panel is gone (but icons are 
there) colors are all wonky in the menu as the highlight doesn't work 
right.  Added to that all internal borders/buttons and progress bars 
are MIA.
