  quite so.  compounding the problem is that i'm still having
occasional video lockups on this system, the last one caused simply by
moving a firefox window.  even after the lockup, i can still "ssh"
into the system but there's nothing in any of the log files that gives
me a hint as to what's going on.

  just not my day today.
