This is all very useful information, thank you.  But I can't do
anything now -- I couldn't type in any of the suggestions from others
in this thread because I kept getting core dumps.  Oops.  Similarly,
trying to reboot my machine and drop into single-user mode, resulted
in the following:

root file system type: ffs
panic: init died (signal 0, exit 1)
fatal breakpoint trap in supervisor mode
trap type 1 code 0 eip c053d1bc cs 8 eflags 246 cr2 bbbec03c ilevel 0
Stopped in pid 1.1 (init) at netbsd:breakpoint+0x4: popl %ebp

... which isn't good.  Is there a way to recover from this?
