I figured it out... sorry for the long story to follow.
Yes, this is a frugal install. I do, however, use a persistant home. I created a normal
user and a console (no x startup) user along with the dsl user for a total of 3 users.
I only backup my /opt stuff and select /etc files. I got the idea from Mikshaw that it
would be wise to scour for stray .uni, unc and assoc type files and I rounded them
all up and placed them in my /home/mydsl/optional folder. BUt this did not prevent
the pop-up at shutdown.
I got desperate and remembered prior Roberts post mentioning how dsl will scan
for a mydsl folder at boot and even though all my extentions were in /home/mydsl/optional
which had been working well before the links.uci auto-install, I decided to rename
it to /home/xmydsl and voila I could shutdown without the pop-up.
I eventually found that somehow my /opt/.mydsl_dir file had changed.
It used to contain "/home/mydsl" but somehow it changed to "/home/mydsl/optional".
I manually editted it back and renamed my folder again and we are good to go.
I'm still learning in small bits about how the whole mydsl system works, is there
a guide to the nuts and bolts of mydsl?
Could DSL somehow have tracked my moving the links.uci file to the optional
directory and modified the /opt/.mydsl_dir file?
