I had similar issues yesterday ( i think it was after i had pushed the
power button to suspend and resume). As I couldn't shutdown cleanly I
forced the power off, which broke the install, so I had to reinstall debian.
No practical help, but at least you aren't the only one with the same
problem :-)
