After wasting time with AppleCare support (who appear to have no idea how OSX actually works and how to troubleshoot it), I finally solved my continued OSX churning by disabling Spotlight indexing on all volumes, completing all configuration changes, shutting down all applications, reenabling Spotlight indexing, rebuilding the Spotlight indices and then letting the computer sit overnight to index itself. Until I did this, OSX kept churning and locking up its own indexing system as it fought with Mac Mail and other apps over access to files.

While changing the keyboard layout for your user account is straightforward enough (System Preferences -> International pane -> Input Menu), changing the default keyboard layout is not so easy. I use Dvorak almost exclusively (with US English enabled for when friends want to use the computer), but foolishly, I did not choose this keyboard layout when I ran through the initial setup.
