Yesterday I installed urxvt & tmux and started fiddling with .Xdefaults, basically I copied this from a urxvt config website.
# transparency - true or false (default) URxvt*transparent: true # tint with any color; i.e., blue, red, tomato4, olivedrab2, etc. # some nice listings are at: # http://www.nisrv.com/drupal/?q=node/11 # http://www.htmlgoodies.com/tutorials/colors/article.php/3478921 URxvt*tintColor: Blue # shading - 0 to 99 darkens, 101 to 200 lightens. # Don't use with tintColor; just use a darker or lighter color instead. #URxvt*shading: 40 # scrollback buffer lines - 65535 is max on most machines (64 is default) URxvt*saveLines: 12000 # font color (default is black) URxvt*foreground: White # background color (prior to tinting) (default is white) URxvt*background: Blue # Xft (X FreeType) with Bitstream, DejaVu, Liberation, or Terminus fonts: # Fedora/debian packages: libXft/libxft2 # An anti-aliased font setup with Xft looks fantastic; it can be a bit choppy # on older systems.

Since then when I have rebooted my laptop, Conky hasn't started. I can start it by Alt+F2 conky but it doesn't start when Openbox starts. Also, in the last hour or so, Chromium-browser has started crashing... I start it again but it crashes after a few seconds of doing nothing
I haven't changed anything in my autostart file recently, and Chromium was working fine this morning!
Any help, as always, gratefully received.

Curioser & curioser... Chromium has stopped crashing and appears to be running fine now. Still have the conky problem though
If you are sure that you havent changed the autostart file, and that you haven`t changed anything in your conky-config, then I guess it has to be something incompatible in your fiddling with .Xdefaults. Hopefully someone will know the exact answer. As for Chromium I have found it to be a bit unstable and somewhat odd behaving in some configurations, so I usually prefer google-chrome, which has been rock solid for me, across all platforms. Never any issues.
- apt-mark hold account
Not sure why, but once I had re-written my conky startup script, everything works fine. But I'm sure I didn't change anything in the script.
Very odd, anyway it's working now
