I still had boinc running at "nice -n 19" and the system wouldn't
boot: It started boinc, reported it was checking the apache.conf and
didn't go any further.  I couldn't kill boinc or setiathome from ddb
and had to push the reset button.  I will look at the patch more
closely tomorrow but it looks suspiciously like it stopped
