1.  change the root password to something you know, (by starting
Terminal, then become root, then type "passwd" and follow the prompts),

2.  determine the IP address, (by ensuring it is associated with an
access point and then use "ifconfig -a" to see the IP address),

3.  from another system, "ssh root ${IP} tail -f /var/log/messages"
where ${IP} is the IP address from step 2,

4.  answer the password prompt, watch the display on the other system,
and try to reproduce the problem.

I'm trying this now.  It hasn't worked, in that it hasn't suddenly
powered down while I do this tail.  I wonder if it is causing whatever
is going wrong to not go wrong.
