I have a situation where, every dozen or so times I resume from hibernation
(only since I set up dual-screens in X) X fails, and I'm forced to power
off.  On reboot, I get this screen about half way through the boot process
(I think it's already in runlevel 2).  I don't recall all the options, as
I've always just been able to choose "resume normal boot".
