My face is red!  I was using a not-Nokia charger and it apparently 
wasn't charging reliably even though the N800 was telling me that it 
was charging.  I, in error, assumed that it would be charged after 
spending a night on the charger.  Confounding the problem was the lack 
of any indication of battery state prior to a successful boot; that is, 
you can't tell if your battery is charged until AFTER it boots 

Anyway, I located the Nokia charger, charged overnight, booted 
successfully, then flashed to the new image.  All seems well.  I am 
greatly enjoying the new camera application.

Willie, ONWARD!  Through the fog!
