Thanks for fishing that out for me. I found that my flash is badly
corrupted. Linux doesn't log an error mounting it, but there is one
empty file with a malformed name in the ovms_config directory. fsck.vfat
complains about some stuff and renames that file but does not recover
Using strings I see that one copy of the configuration is still present
so the image is not totally erased but the filesystem has been corrupted.
I have a backup (a bunch of commands in a txt file to paste into the
console) so I did the full erase and set things up again. It has been
operating normally for the 24 hours or so since.
