Good idea Hugh, but that wasn't it.  I just finished messing around 
with nxterm some more, and now have it working as it always was.  Not 
sure why though...

I first typed <nxterm -help>, and started trying out all the options.  
When I got to -name, the window size changed back to 80x25.  I then 
edited my launcher to use the option -name instead of -T, and it worked 
as always.  I was even able to use the geometry command.  I suppose there 
is a good explanation for all this, but since its working again, I'm on 
to different things...  Like work...
