All this from cvsup about 2 or 3 pm pst:

My problem is more related to the earlier ones; I hadn't noticed cron (which
now looking didn't start), but moused doesn't start, nor sshd.  These are *not*
in the ports...  (and yes, I refreshed all of /etc/rc* and removed old scripts
from rc.d...)

The problem with cups.sh dropped me into single user, from which if I just ^D
all the missing stuff started, including cupsd.  Strange...  Actually does
sound like a script is leaving state around that affects others.
