Collaboration test environment problem

There is another difference I thought of.  The machine that seems to be 
working OK is running in a Xepher window.  I'm using a wide screen flat 
monitor running at 1440 x 900.

The machine that doesn't seem to be working runs at 1024 x 768 and Sugar 
takes up the entire screen.  When I was running Xubuntu on the same box 
it was able to run at a higher resolution (don't know what it was, but 
Sugar ran in a window).  Fedora doesn't want to run at a higher 
resolution.  So maybe the "buddy" is going offscreen somehow.  Now the 
toolbar, etc. for the neighborhood view doesn't look truncated, so I 
don't know.

I'm not exactly sure that the same users are appearing in both 
neighborhoods (other than the one I know is missing).  I'll try and 
verify that tonight.
