Hi Bas
I have been having the same problem as you. My "freezing" is not as 
frequent as yours. Mine happens maybe once or twice a day, and sometimes 
goes for days without "freezing". My computer is desktop not a laptop. 
When I brought up the subject many months ago (I think on the "official" 
Kubuntu forum) most people tried to steer me in the direction of a 
computer problem (memory or hard drive, etc.) The only reason I doubted 
that analysis was the fact that in Windows 7 (my computer dual boots) 
there was no problem. Only with Kubuntu 12.10 and now 13.04 do I have 
the problem. I haven't contributed much if finding the problem but at 
least I now know that I am not alone and maybe the problem isn't with my 
computer but with Kubuntu. If you find anything Kubuntu related please 
keep me informed.
