P.S.: It passed a memory test lasting an hour which I ran from GRUB
yesterday morning, before and after which it could not load Ubuntu. So
to me that suggests something other than a hardware issue; hence my
thoughts about the file directory 'disintegrating' at a software level,
as Al warned might happen at some future point after my foray into sudo
nautilus several months ago.
