	When you say 'hard freeze' what do you mean ? an X grab leak so you
can't type / select anything ? or that the application itself has hung -
if so a backtrace would be helpful. It's hard to debug without more
information. You can try running the app on a console to help debugging
in the case of grab leakage incidentally.
