dunno why dropbear drops the connection on upgrade, ususally existing  
connections shouldn't be affected. maybe one of dropbear's .preinst or  
.postinst scripts causes the restart.
nohup opkg upgrade &
the upgrade should continue even if teh connection is lost

restarting X from fr terminal _always_ crashes the my fr completely!
i do all this stuff over ssh (cant' remember having lost the connection  
while dopbear upgrades), so the X restart does not affect my connection.
even restarting X works over ssh:
/etc/init.d/xsmthing-nodm stop
/etc/init.d/xsmthing-nodm start
notice, though, that
/etc/init.d/xsmthing-nodm restart
seems _not_ to work!
