OK, I have made a little progress on this.  I mounted my VM image on a 
loopback and chroot'd to it.  I opened /etc/init.d/hwclock.sh 
and /etc/init.d/hwclockfirst.sh and added the following to the top of each 

  exit 0

and it now boots fully into a console.

I did run the "update-rc.d" script to remove those two scripts from being run 
on startup, but it seems that something is still calling them.

Anyway, this is at best a workaround, but it works!
