    Since moving to Feisty, I'm having some oddness, yeah; I still have 
.oggs playing, but certain applications just LOCK without using 
noticable CPU/Network- possibly LDAP related, though the Dapper boxes 
don't have any problem with it.

    I'm also about to start editing /etc/hosts to work out the 'new' way 
that localhost is defined, other than

    How "locked" are you?  A complete lock, losing the mouse and 
everything, it's usually RAM.  Run memtest at boot overnight to look for it.

    Other 'locks' happen for other reasons, almost always due to 
hardware _setup_ not so much hardware...
