Thank you for the responses.
The issue came to a head when I figured out that my /home partition had 
become corrupted (?).  Permissions were a problem, couldn't install 
other distributions...fortunately, it didn't take too much copy time to 
insure all files were to be had on the other laptop.
Formatting and a fresh install cured the ails.
