Of 148 lines of output, 147 looked like this one:
deinstall ok config-files libweather-ion4a 4:4.4.5-7+squeeze1 amd64

The other is this:
install ok half-configured linux-image-2.6.32-5-amd64 2.6.32-48squeeze6 amd64

The latter is not unexpected, given its routine of not completing linux-image

Repeating that command without the grep produced 0 lines not containing ok,
1923 total lines.

I gave up trying to "fix" the mouse pointer. I made it work by deleting most
of the content of .kde/share/config/, kde4 configs, gnome/gtk configs, and
the caches to more or less emulate a virgin user. Sound I "fixed" by
installing the PCI Audigy Sound Blaster that had been used with the old
motherboard. With that installed, sound simply works without me having had to
do configuring.
