OK, it happened again, so I tried your suggestion. Guess what, it waits
5 seconds then prints this:

The alternate system clock has died!
Reverting to ``pigs'' display.

I don't know what the 'alternate system clock' is supposed to be but my
guess is the CMOS battery ran out or something like that. I'm going to
check that at the next available opportunity.

Thanks for your suggestion!
