Hi Fergus,

thanks for your reply.

It's been a few years since I used Unix when I worked at University and 
my Unix knowledge has never been brilliant and has become even rustier 
since then, so please forgive me if this is irrelevant, but I start my X 
environment with the following command:

startx -- -screen 0 1200 900

Again, I'm not sure whether this is relevant, but my .xinitrc file (not 
set up by me, I hasten to add) contains the following lines:

exec >$HOME/.x11startlog 2>$HOME/.x11startlog
xsetroot -bitmap .esru.x
xterm -name Console -fn 6x13 -C -g 85X8+0+0 &
xterm -name Xterm1 -fn 6x13 -g 85X35+0-0 -sb -sl 400 &
xterm -name Xterm2 -fn 6x13 -g 80X24+350-50 -sb -sl 400 &
# xclock -g 75X75-60+0 &
xstdcmap -delete all
exec twm

Does the quite mode you mentioned fit in here somewhere?
