I suspect that this is the reason.

All your notes on my set-up are correct.

But my remedy is different.  I have drawn a line in the sand.  

My setup may be unconventional, but my computing needs are very modest.  
Debian 5.0 supplies all the packages that I use, and I can see no benefit 
from installing later versions of Debian.

This - for all practical purposes - was my situation up to the release of 
Debian 6.0.  Hence I have a track-record of successful upgrades that use 
CDs/DVDs.  And no experience in using the Internet!

Again, thank you for the continuing interest.
