after some problems [1] after the update saturday night i wildly guessed  
to blame the updated packages, downgraded the few packages in question and  
removed experimental from my sources.list

1: while installing a package manually via apt-get the fr froze -- since  
ssh (both dropbear and openssh, openssh seems more stable) is usually  
flaky and prone to die while doing apt-get/dpkg operations in particular,  
it took a while to detect the deep freeze. i had to remove the battery.
after reboot /var/lib/dpkg/available was gone and trying to acces the  
directory froze th fr again.
next boot the fr froze after switching to X, no console but no X yet, dim  
background. over.

booting to my old debian on sd worked, so i downloaded manually all 5 or 6  
packages, put them via scp into fr's flash and rebooted from flash ...  
this time X came up, i could ssh into and dpkg -i the packages.
no crashes so far.
