oops .. send permaturely ... to continue ...
and before that I installed the bt-plugin applet to get some data dumps from
my bt GPS and had to reboot to get that working right.

After updating the maemo-mapper, I started it and it started fine but I
didn't have my GPS around to try it. I let my 770 charge overnight. Tried
starting maemo-mapper after I had my GPS on and it would look like it was
starting but would never come up. So I manually rebooted and now I am stuck.

I suspect that it is either a wonky mweather applet crashing the desktop or
some wierd interaction with the new maemo-mapper and the bt-plugin.

Is my only option to reflash the firmware if the desktop crashes like this?
