[Summary] runaway dtsession errors

The consensus is reboot.

Patching left the system in what is essentially an unstable state where 
the executables running in memory do not correspond to the libraries on 
disk. Reboot should bring it back up clean.

I cannot do it now, but I will do it early tomorrow morning. Assume it 
will work. If anything unusual happens I will ammend my summary.
