Many thanks.  Seems to have worked like magic.  Could not follow all the steps 
from the link - had to improvise, but after removing zmd and beagle, the 
problem seems to have disappeared.

Now, to find out other such pieces of softwares and remove them ...

I think, I should try out the slackware on the extra partition.
