Thanks for the tips - it looks like I may be ok after all - I asked
synaptic if there were any upgrades since yesterday, and low and behold
there was a new kernel and libc, which I installed and the computer is
booting from the new kernel. They must have blundered with the version I
picked up.
Even better the gub build looks like it may go thru - it has got a long
way without falling over.
