Something apparently had the screen locked during my previous attempts.
XFCE, settings/display was using a laptop default, selecting the AOL 
monitor button and bringing up the multiselector, there was a 13##x768 
option that I clicked, and one second later I had a screen, so I clicked 
on save.

Then, ran LinuxCNC, and the circles from an encoder disk backplot are now 
perfect.  If it holds over a reboot, I am a happy camper.

Thanks Felix.
