But the odd thing is that it starts OK from old, saved flight files, not from 
the FS9 ikon. One complication is that I'd been using the NO CD replacement 
ikon. I think there's some possible incompatibillity between pre and post FS9 
Patch ikons, since there was one for each.
Since we're in the interim FS9 / FSX era, I think I'll settle for an unpatched 
FS9, with the original NO CD.

Off to uninstall.
