Please ignore this post.  I've been poking around and I discovered a 
file called .Xclients.  It looks like a shell script.  Even though I 
don't know anything about shell scripting I deleted a line, and replaced 
it with a copy of another line below it following the word "else".  That 
did the trick.  I'm back in Gnome, and I promise that I will never touch 
the Gnome Desktop Switching Tool in RedHat 6.1 ever again.
