Boot failure after system reconfigure.

I slightly edited my /etc/config.scm file to add the Sway and 
Enlightenment window managers, but after a 'sudo guix system 
reconfigure /etc/config.scm', the system fails to boot.

I *can* boot back into my original configuration without any issue.
I could not find too much help on the problem. I understand 'guix 
system reconfigure' does not check for boot problems. I just don't 
know how to ensure my machine boots properly.

Durng the boot process, after the GRUB boot menu, I get the following 
output (note that I cannot copy/paste, so it is slightly abbreviated)

CG Warning: pthread_getattr_np or pthread_attr_getstack failed for main thread
CG Warning: Couldn't read /proc/stat
Welcome, this is GNU's early boot Guile.

For what it's worth, the and "battery" line may be due to the 
fact that I took the battery out of my machine because it wasn't 
working ("my machine" is an x86_64 ASUS AMD A10 laptop), or it could 
be due to my 'tlp' program. I'll post my config.scm if you need it. I 
can't now cause I'm on another machine to copy the boot message.
Guix is up to date (not on root, but on my user account)

Rock on,
Ben Card (Muto)
