Indeed - please try to be specific about what you're actually doing, I
haven't seen a "transmit" key on a keyboard since about 1983.

(I did try running just "import" on intrepid, it's part of
imagemagick, but it changes the cursor (to select a screen region) and
doesn't put up dialog boxes, so that's probably not it...)
