Can Only Boot in Safe Mode

Advertisement
Suddenly, I'm only able to boot in safe mode. If I try to boot or reboot normally, I hang at Apple screen.
Prior to the first failed reboot, I was unable to use system update because it kept hanging and I had to force-quit it (which was my reason for rebooting). Prior to that I had (what I thought was) a completed successful install of several updates requiring reboot (the last several items, except for Safari 4).
Any thoughts on what might be going on here (a messed up system update still in progress, perhaps) and what I might do to fix it (some system update state files I can delete)?
Any help is appreciated!

Verifying permissions produces some issues. Is my problem in there somewhere?
