I should have mentioned that

1) I leave the CD rom in the drive during these operations; if it is ejected, I don't get the popups
2) I've had this happen both with editing the repositories by hand and with synaptic
3) The sequence I use to boot (in case it matters) is to

     a) type space to get menu
     b) hit <enter> for english
     c) hit F6 followed by ESC to get an editable kernel line
     d) remove the existing arguments after the filename (to see the logging lines during boot)
         and just add TORAM=yes
     e) hit <enter> to actually boot
