It does not seem to be related to yum, because I can run yum at the cli
with no problems.  Here's the thing - there are no yum processes running
at all (that I can see via `ps' as root)! It does not seem to be tied into yum,
but some process via "Add/Remove Software", or so it seems.  There does
not seem to be any processes that I can see that puts the package icon into
the Task Notification area, at least, I cannot locate "it" via `ps' as root.

Also - I am running a fresh-install of F10 on another computer - I added
nothing else during F10 LiveCD and after a reboot, I believe I did however
get an update request, and I let it fly. The problem seemed to appear when
used the "Add/Remove Software" afterwards.  What are the odds of installing
from "Add/Remove Software", only Thunderbird, would cause this issue?

FWIW,
Dan
