Hi All
Some recent observations on the "freezing" problem.
1. Bas and I both have AMD cpu's. Maybe there lies a problem that 
started with 12,10 and hasn't yet been solved?
2. I have recently upgrades to KDE 4.10.4 and I haven't frozen yet. True 
it is only a few days but things are looking better.
Any similar observations?
