Hi Leen...

Thanks for the quick answer. Here's were I'm at as of now:

Did you read the first lines of /etc/profile? In short: better
use /etc/profile.local instead of /etc/profile. But
modifying /etc/profile in itself probably is not the cause.

I'm trying to change the UMASK to "0000". I'm doing this so that when this client accesses an NFS share, it keeps chmod 777 permissions on all files that it makes. I'm controlling access to NFS export via IP address, and I want all clients authorized to see the NFS export to be able to exchange data freely. That being said, will doing the /etc/ profile.local do the same thing?

Are you sure the changes you made do not contain syntax errors?

All I changed in the profile file was the entry for umask, and I changed it to 0000.

Any errors reported in /home/<username>/.xsession-errors,
and/or /var/log/Xorg.*.log?

I'll have to go back and look. I archived my "bad" Linux virtual hard drives, and I can restore them to take a look.

On a side note, I also noticed that these problems began to show up when I did the following while logged in as non-root:

sudo -s
ifdown eth0
ifup eth0

I was simply trying to force the virtual machine into reacquiring a new IP address. I did have to be logged in with root-level access in both scenarios. Is that perhaps the problem?

Thanks in advance, once again!
