Actually, I open Network every time I go on line (eg, it's open right now); I can connect from that panel and monitor time online as well as whether stuff is loading. And Modem is indeed my top item.

Clearing those caches still seems to have done the trick.
In fact, earlier today I showed a colleague with a new MacBook Pro running Lion how to do that, and it likewise cleared up a whole bunch of problems he was experiencing in Word and Mail.

I'm happy, although still mystified, that clearing those caches has apparently turned all the tricks that needed turning, but just remember that trashing entire cache folders willy-nilly has the potential to cost you data and/or settings that not only most likely have nothing to do with your issue but may be a major nuisance to recreate.

I hear you. If it does anything nasty like you describe, I've got a case number and the name of the Apple advisor who claimed that in Lion it won't hurt to do it. That was my concern when he suggested it, but he insisted that it was the way to go. (He may wind up stacking boxes in the back room if he's wrong.)
