Hmm...  I was running a 2.4.2 kernel.  In view of what you said I got
the 2.4.3 kernel source and tried that - no change - same error, and
then tried my last 2.4.1 kernel - still no-go.

I've got three Debian unstables installed on this box and when I get an
upgrade/snapshot that I'm happy with I freeze it and then bring the next
oldest snapshot up to date, and start updating that.  I tried booting up
my last snapshot - running a 2.4.2 kernel, and that was ok, so it seems
that it's one of the packages that has caused the problem.

Although I can get the --get-selections list from dpkg, there doesn't
seem to be a way of getting a list of installed packages and their
versions.  I can identify the newest packages from their date stamp but
there was over 100 packages updated last time I did it.  When I get more
time I'll try reverting some of the more obvious candidates.
