I saw (in the other thread) that others ARE having trouble with laptop
mode scripts after the update. In case someone finds this thread --
since I'm running an oldworld Mac I went into BootX and added "single
ro" to the end of the kernel prompt. (I probably didn't need to use ro
but I saw it on a grub menu item on a PC and it didn't seem to hurt.)
Then I deleted the symlink to laptop mode in /etc/rc2.d/ and the
system was able to come up normally.

Next I need to figure out whether/how to downgrade that package. I am
a bit uncertain what's handled by laptop mode vs pbbuttonsd -- maybe I
don't need laptop mode at all?
