I upgraded my linux environment, particularly the video card, and am not
having any of those nasty display problems anymore (I hope).

My recent problem was due to me sending "Input 2" into a "Resolve on Match"
twice instead of "Input 1" and "Input 2".  It was a typo and a conceptual
error.  The sad part is that the GUI never complained on save or exit.  It
just refused to take the change?

It's working now.  Thanks.
