Thanks to both of you. I came back to cctalk after not checking it for a 
few days, and wondered what the %$#^ was going on, with every message 
showing with cctalk as the "from" field.

It is indeed under edit/preferences/display on my version, too. I'm not 
sure why it's not consistent with the non-Linux versions, I would have 
thought a consistent UI across all platforms was a Good Thing.
