I've been *VERY* busy between then and now cleaning up the boot loader
"accumulated technical debt". Alas, sounds like I've broken something. So I
think it's a binary search: I'd start with 326370 as the pivot and 326500 /
326250 as the next steps if it succeeds / fails.

So you are seeing a BTX error? Before we even get to running /boot/loader,
correct? Any chance you can get me that error?

Good! One less problem for me to track...
