Thanks, Rob. I noticed after I first posted that sometimes it works
after a restart. But, I NEVER saw this problem with earlier builds, so
(prematurely) concluded that it was new with this one.

Try restarting XWin.exe.  That's happened to me on a number of occasions
(with different builds, spanning a few months' time)..  Can't explain
but it's a minor annoyance.
