My machine has this component, hers' does too.

Weird that the executable actually ran though? Everything apart from 
clicking on the URLlabels works?

... (thinking) ...

BIG OOPS! My machine has a local version of gb.desktop.
Installed the local version. Rebuilt it and now all works.

Maybe I'd better have a look at what I actually changed in the desktop 
Maybe not.
Maybe, later. ( I hate diffs )
Such is life.
