I've regained my footing on this. The second or third time I tried launching the shell, all went well. I boned up on using X11, added a few packages, and now I can run X11 apps just fine, and everything else I need to do seems to be okay. I still get the pango error every time I add something with setup.exe, but based on Achim's suggestion, I'll just work around that by manually putting that directory in place, and maybe even an empty file, if that's what it takes.
Thanks for all the help, even the touching suggestion about my ability to inspire my students. I seem to have broken rule number two of public speaking: know your audience.
