Thanks All,

I have everything mostly back in order.

I was doing a large data transfer over wireless the afternoon prior to
the problem, I don't know that I fully understand the bug that made
this a bad idea but it may have contributed to my problems.  The new
image I flashed as part of the fix should cover this issue too.

The power drain issue probably is my somewhat ancient enterasys AP at

my plan going forward is to use a combination of 

dpkg --get-selections # to backup list of package selections


dpkg --set-selections
apt-get dselect-upgrade # to restore package selections

Are there any oddities in maemo -vs- debian handling of this that are
likely to surprise me in unpleasant ways?
