No, as far as i can tell, X is not trying to start at boot - i have
not installed packages such as X/G/KDM, which do that.
As you can see from my other mail in this thread (with changed subject
line), i have narrowed down the problem to the package
xserver-xorg-video-intel. When that package is installed, even if i
select "recovery mode" at the grub prompt, i eventually reach a black
screen. I think that should rule out any possibility of X trying to
start at boot and causing a blank screen.

No, i haven't.
