“Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of other's opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”

So it seems like Mathematica is just unusually badly behaved. In the end I had to force shutdown (regular shutdown hung). I don't have this problem with any other app, but Mathematica has had it more than once.

No desire to: the question was simply whether that was what was going on.

Any thoughts on why I can't erase the hard drive itself. I do indeed fall into the default case with a single partition. Is the "drive" I've booted from to perform this process ("OS X Base System"; I have no CD-ROM) actually on that hard drive, and is that why I can't erase it?

This should be a comment on the original question, rather than an "answer".
