Sorry for the confusion. I was running from a Fedora Core 3 system to
check out what many local users here are experiencing (nothing
expecially good, except that xscreensaver runs ok, whereas it fails on
my gentoo system). Apparently Red Hat (and some other systems) have
/sbin/pidof. 'which pidof' from a normal user finds nothing.
