I was thinking it might be some freaky /etc/alternatives corruption. I guess
we'll never know though.
I *doubt* it was filesystem corruption. Possibly, but my experience with
filesystem corruption has been that once something gets to the point where
one command is running as though it were another, you cd into a directory,
and it's not there anymore, and then the kernel crashes, and it's tango
sierra for the filesystem, do not fsck, do not pass go, do not collect $200.
I think it was an early ext3 bug that caused that in my case though. That's
why I still won't run ext3 to this day. Anyway, I guess it doesn't matter
