Comments/Problems:

Upon first boot into new system, the syslog began filling up with hundreds of KB of messages like:
Dec 15 20:24:45 hermes kernel: [    8.320187] ------------[ cut here ]------------
Dec 15 20:24:45 hermes kernel: [    8.320299] WARNING: CPU: 0 PID: 188 at /build/linux-gLUc9E/linux-3.16.36/drivers/gpu/drm/i915/intel_display.c:4952 intel_modeset_check_state+0x724/0x730 [i915]()
Dec 15 20:24:45 hermes kernel: [    8.320303] wrong connector dpms state

see: http://paste.debian.net/902680/      for a 99kB version of this stuff.

At this point, the screen was showing a gnome login screen.  After I entered the password, we eventually get to the famous "Oh no!  Something has gone wrong" screen, and gnome becomes useless.

Browsing online, I found the suggestion to add this line:
options i915 modeset=0
into /etc/modprobe.d/modesetting.conf

Doing that seems to have solved the problem -- no more of the [ cut here ] blocks in the syslog,
and the gnome login works OK, and the system seems mostly normal now.
