Yeah, the bug I was referring to shouldn't freeze the machine permanently,
just for a minute or so every now and again, and there shouldn't be any long
term effects. So, if your machine isn't unfreezing, I doubt it's that.
Did you try a memcheck?
BTW, don't discount hardware problems because it doesn't seem to happen in
Windows. Both systems will use the machine in quite different ways. I used to
have a machines which worked fine all the time until I tried to compile all
of KDE once, then I realised that it was dropping bits in the RAM, but most
of the time I never used them (compiling all of KDE takes lots of time /
memory / patience).
