Well, that explains why I can't boot after updating this morning.  I get 
tons of messages about "system cannot allocate temporary file", and it 
eventually stalls (but responds to magic keys)

I have initscripts and systemd installed, but when I try to install 
systemd-sysvinit it wants to remove sysvinit.

Note that I haven't done anything about systemd one way or the other, so 
what's installed is what an install around September/October installed, 
plus --auto-select updates since then.

Any ideas ?
