My housemate sees similar probs with his Mandrake 7.1 install running
Helix GNOME 1.2 and either Soldier of Fortune or Quake3 Arena.

I have seen it happen and would have said it looks more like a mouse
lockup than anything else. Switching out to a console and killing the
game seems to fix it (but then he has to restart the game). He now has a
script which he runs when he wants to play games that puts "startkde" in
his .xinitrc The games run fine in KDE.

Sorry I cant give any more details but its not my box.
