Yup that sounds like a broken config, are there any other errors in the logs
that look suspicious? Maybe something unrelated is causing your desktop to
freeze, usually hardware drivers are the biggest culprits for hard hangs, do
you have proprietary video drivers enabled? Or use a hardware RAID?

I'm guessing a driver has become unstable after its config got changed at
some point. maybe reconfiguring the XServer will restore the default config,
assuming its a video problem?
