OLPC's builds (at least the F7/F9 based series) I understood they were
on a ramdisk. Looking at it now, however, it seems that they aren't --
but a restart of X clears it out anyway.

So by the time the problem is _seen_, *poof*, logs are gone.

Maybe something in the sugar startup clears it out. Dunno. Doesn't
seem to be olpc-configure.
