  Hm.  When you installed, did you choose the "Just for me" option?  And perhaps
at sometime afterward rename your username?  It might straighten things out a

  Standard advice at the moment for anyone with setup troubles is "First install
everything you want but for X, then run setup again to install the X packages"
