GREAT! Very Happy Rebooting failed (displayed a pstree and hung!Shocked) but powering off and on booted the computer gracefully back into X! I purged lvm2 without issue, and the system is working perfectly! Smile

I've got to dash out to work now, but will report back with more info tonight or on Wednesday.

Cool Thanks for all the help Cool

OK, here are recent log files before it all went weird on 2014-04-27:

Any devs that care to look can see if they can figure out what wanted to replace sysvinit-core with systemd-sysv (certainly not me), which seemed to trigger this whole madness.

I've also no idea why cryptsetup, os-prober and lvm2 were also breaking stuff so badly. Surely they should report error messages and terminate, not just sit there hanging?

And why were the lvm2 processes unkillable with "kill -9" - I thought that was a magic death ray for anything. I tried reading the ps man page, but couldn't understand it; maybe something to do with the STATus flag "D" - does that mean "daemon" which will be respawned ad infinitum?

Finally, now I know first hand how mission critical it is, it would be nice if someone in the know could give advance warning of when the systemd transition* is likely to come to aptosid (if that's known). Although I'm sure it'll Just Work (TM), my Googling showed that some other Debian unstable users have seen odd things, although they don't have the aptosid(TM) "(usually) more-stable-than-Debian-Stable" magic fairy dust Cool

HTH

*or indeed any potentially hair-raising upgrades.
