	I didn't, I swear! I didn't do the original mv to create the .old, the
only thing I did was to try the mv in response to advise from Ben to
cure the above error and found that the .old already existed. Strange.
Something created the .old file on my system. It is a good thing to,
because compiz would not run with /usr/lib/libIndirectGL.so.1 present.
Runs find with it moved to .old.

	Does compiz have its "init layout" anywhere or is that what
/usr/bin/compiz-manager does? I would like to have a step by step layout
of the initialization so I could go back and hand test each step to find
where the problem is the next time compiz decides to disappear.

	Thanks for your help!
