 Point taken on the "it's not multiple personality disorder," it may or may
not be an interaction of the various "personalities" involved, unless we
were checking which kernel was driving which system . . . it's hard to
"rule out" as one of the personalities may have been over-riding the other
personalities, and perhaps causing a Munchhausen situation.  But, since it
was more like the machine was "unresponsive" to key stroke and would only
boot into one system, then perhaps that was more like "Dissociative
Disorder"  ??  Or, maybe just "Cognitive Dissonance Disorder" . . . unable
to make clear cognition due to System Dissonance Signals interfering in
bootloader decision-making???  So many options that could have been
involved, maybe it was MPD-like syndrome, rather than full blown "Disorder"
. . . .
