There was nothing in the XFree log, but I'll try booting without X.
(Fortunately, I've already changed the runlevels to match what I was
used to from YDL/RH. Debian treats levels 2-5 all the same, which I
found odd, but I guess there's no standardization on that.)
Any idea what that "input condition is: 0x10" message means, though?
It's the only consistent feature, and I wonder if it might at least be a
clue as to what's going on.
