Have you tried creating a new user and see if it locks up then? When it locks 
up can you ctrl-alt-backspace or ctrl-alt-f1 successfully?

If your machine is hard locking at seeming random times it sounds like a 
hardware issue. I would start by removing and re-seating all your cards, ram 
and cpu.

Chances are a kernel oops is being reported but you only would only see that 
at the console. And if you are being told that user level applications were 
the source of the oops then it's pretty telling that it's a hardware problem.
