I had set up a profile for my old machine.   It was set up under Fedora
Linux 12 so that when I logged in, a line in .bash_profile ran dispwin
-L,   I had of course ran dispwin -I previously.

I tried to setup my new machine, running Fedora 14 Linux,  in a similar
way with the same dot files containing profiles.   I ran dispwin -I
using what I thought was the most recent profile I had created.  (I plan
to start from scratch at a later date and make a new profile.)

After doing this,  dispwin -L worked.   But today, after having logged
out and rebooted once or twice and shut off the machine to move it,  I
found that dispwin -L complained about not being able to find what it
needed.  Also, xprop -root didn't show any installed profile.

So I don't understand why previously, the dispwin -L in .bash_profile
set the profile, but now on the new machine it doesn't without rerunning
dispwin -I.

I have the same .color and .local/share/color files on the new machine.

Also, the old machine is now attached to another monitor, but xprop
-root shows an installed profile despite my not having rerun dispwin -I.

Why did it disappear from the new machine?
