I put in a fresh battery and tried a brand-new SD-card minus CHDK; I could once again take pictures, but now I was constantly getting the flashing orange light and winking camera icon at every half-press of the shutter, yet everything else worked.
It's possible we can get some information about the original crash if you get the ROMLOG. You can do this in CHDK by going to miscellaneous stuff -> Debug -> Save ROM crash log. If the camera has a crashlog saved on internal memory, it will be copied to a file in the root of your SD card called ROMLOG.LOG. If there is one, please post it here as an attachment. Since the camera apperently hung rather than shutting down after the error, it's quite possible it didn't record one.
If I understand, this ROMLOG may possibly be stored in the camera's memory and not on the card; I do the CHDK debug thing and it will then copy this log onto the card, right ?
I really wasn't making notes of what I was doing prior to the crash and can't remember just what I may have done that could have brought it on.

Here is the ROMLOG; it is dated 9th and the events happened on 13th; so, it may not be of any benefit.
