Worked great - thanks!  At this point, I only have one authorized key; I
presume that I'll want to set up separate keys for other source machines.
What is the preferred method for adding new keys to the file?  `cat
identity.pub >> authorized_keys`?

Actually, now that I know what I'm doing, I'd have to say that it's about as
easy on my home machines.  _Much_ easier on a box where you don't have root
access and can't modify shosts.equiv, though...

I think those were due to stale NFS handles.  The client machine I was
working from as I upgraded the server has /home NFS-mounted from that server.
NFS became unavailable temporarily during the upgrade process (since it was
one of the things upgraded) and I suspect that made my X session think ~ was
unavailable even after NFS was back up.

In any case, logging completely out of the (client) system and back in fixed
those two problems.  Everything seems to be fully functional again.
(Although when I do an apt-get from the command line, it seems to think I
only have 32 packages installed...)
