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).
