Well, I had an awful time finding an app that would open
a .galeon bookmark file; and when that succeeded, I realized it was going
to be a huge job looking for anything obviously wrong anywhere.
But I remembered that I have plenty of other browsers, and Galeon
isn't the one I keep my main stash in.
So I started sending whole bookmark files to the trash.
Eventually I had trashed them all -- and the result is still the same.
Clicking the launcher in the drawer puts a little box on the panel which
says (if you put the cursor over it) "Starting Galeon," or words to that
After a few seconds, the little box goes away. And that's the end
