I think you were right Alex.
I found two GDAL installs, only one of which had MrSID and ECW
capability. Only one was removable via Synaptic - the wrong one. I since
tried to destroy everything GDAL on my machine to start again. I'll see
But I've learnt a bit about Ubuntu in the process.

I would look to make sure that you do not have more than one install of
GDAL. Are you using GDAL from Ubuntugis, source or another repo?
QGIS might be using a different GDAL install than the 1st one on your
path as shown by GDALformats.
