Actually, all the packages containing "network-manager" in their names 
seem already not to be installed.  Aptitude reports them as purged, which 
presumably means never installed.  So unless it gets installed by a rogue

Thanks for the advice.  I'll ssh in and if the text consoles don't 
reappear after completing the upgrade, I can investigate further at
