No, the box boots to the console and X is started from the command

Can't think of a way to get into an _interactive_ zsh without typing
a password sowmewhere. The loss must have occured when shutting
down the machine in the previous session.

Yeah. But I've just taken a look at the output of the smartmon

seems to be good enough for the rest of my life, without having to
worry about additional measures.
