This happened again, and it seems to have been caused by a database 
problem. A string of "Unable to connect to database" occurred before 
this. It happened after a suspend and resume, and the IP address had not 
yet been re-assigned by DHCP. I have now changed the config.xml to use 
localhost instead of the Ethernet ip address. Hopefully this will solve it
