there's no such thing as "nuts" while doing an isolation even if you
have a morethan TERABYTE of RAM.

the OP did'nt mention if he upgrade or clean install to breezy. trying
different wm is part of the isolation or a first step on why that

unless the OP using a lowtech connection. Does the OP did something
already to know what really the problem cause?
