Well, I can't find anything about iteration in any of the server logs (everything under
/var/log).  Let me know if you find any more info on where specifically to look.

As for more clues, I removed LDM_DIRECTX=True in /opt/ltsp/i386/etc/lts.conf, and now
when the client freezes hard, I can still move the mouse around, but still have no
input.  So before the client would freeze the mouse while spinning showing the page was
loading, now with X over ssh the mouse stops spinning when the client freezes and still
has the ability to move around the screen.  The only way to fix things is power down the
client (either manually or with the script from Scott), kill the users processes, kill
the left over nbd-server and nbdswap processes, then reboot and all is well until I hit
a very graphic intense website.
