With help from Dmitri and others working on the kernel for the Tosa on Angstrom, things are starting to get interesting again!

I decided I'd like to start to play again. I was able to get e-wm installed and it even starts up to the point where the language is asked for, but can get no further.

First thing: there is no language selectable on that screen...not sure if that even matters.

The killer: the screen is not registering touches...nor do any of the buttons or keys seem to do any selecting of items on the screen.

I've got tslib installed, but I'm wondering if there's anywhere these things get logged. Can't find anything pertinent in dmesg.

tmio-nand tmio-nand: timeout waiting for interrupt

Don't think that's anything...

If anyone has any pointers on where to start looking, I'd appreciate it.

What about running strace? I am not sure if it's appropriate for what you are doing, but if this is something that can be started from command line, you could see what went wrong with it by using strace.

syntax to put the output on file called /mnt/card/STRACEOUTPUT would be:

strace -f -v -s 100 -o /mnt/card/STRACEOUTPUT e-wm &

Output can be huge, and this might be a crazy suggestion if you can't start e-wm from command line, but what the heck.

Output can also be a challenge to decipher, you can check man page on it and also the "-s 100" can be changed to ask for more or less characters per string output for each line. "-s 60" is more standard but I've found it isn't always long enough if something important gets cut off.
