Try running fsck on the drive. It usually goes something like this:

lots of crap while apps shut down
Including ssh. :) Console almost at arm's length though.

Went well; for the heck of it I did a df right after mounting hda1 read
only and it looked peachy.
# fsck /dev/hda1
it will scan for errors
make sure the output is what you expect
# mount / -o remount,rw
# init 2
stuff should start back up
Worked like a charm, gotta read up on init - looks handy. Since df looked
good before running fsck wonder if something I did recently messed up the
display and just stopping my running processes fixed it?
