Thank you for the reply!  Yes, I'm able to roll back by choosing a
previous GRUB menu entry.  I love this feature of GuixSD.  :-)

SLiM is included in the %desktop-services (see:
gnu/services/desktop.scm), so anyone who uses %desktop-services without
modifying it is using SLiM.

Thank you for the info and offer for help!  I think I need to
investigate a little more on my own first, though.  So far, I haven't
seen or heard any evidence to suggest this is a problem with Guix.  It
sounds more like a problem with my specific situation.

Strangely, this problem only occurs for me in my VirtualBox VM.  On
other bare metal GuixSD installations, I've run "guix pull" and
reconfigured my system without any problems.  I'll keep investigating
and let you know if I find out anything useful.

Just knowing that nobody else has encountered the problem is helpful.
