thanks, i've looked back and found them, and on the basis of Lorn's 
advice and Alex's followup, i've commented out various sections of my 
Storage.conf file.  when i restart X, qpe settles down almost instantly; 
hopefully, it'll stay that way.

i've documented it at 
http://www.teaparty.net/technotes/openmoko-2.html#QPE-cpu .  thanks to all 
for the invaluable advice and pointers.
