Well... so am I. I have one system that is freezing w/Ubuntu; locks up,
screen is still there but no mouse or keyboard. I have to hard reboot to
get it working again & I suspect it's an X problem. Dualboots to WinXP
w/no issues, checked the drives & all check out fine as does the memory,
exact same hardware & bios versions as two other systems (MB, graphic
card, etc), tried different kernals, have 8.04, 9.04, and 9.10 on it &
they all seem to lock randomly.

So... I'm also adding:
to the list.
