If I upgrade to 4.5, should I

Yes.
Complaints usually come after upgrade to 4.5 :(
(I downgraded to 4.4 twice)
Cure is dbus and kernel upgrade.
I used HEAD repo for kernel.
Not sure what dbus package to use.

I located few newer versions (1.3.2 and 1.4.0) in home repositories on OBS,
but who knows what for they are:
http://software.opensuse.org/search?baseproject=openSUSE:11.3&q="dbus-1";
Would this also explain why my mouse pointer gets stuck every 30 secs or so?
My keyboard buffer is also sluggish, and intermittently loses characters. IOW
I'm typing away (I'm not a fast typer, so I'm not filling up the buffer
quickly) when the screen stops displaying the characters I've typed. After a
few seconds, it catches up, but may have forgotten some of the characters, so
I have to keep going back and correcting my work. This can be especially
frustrating when it happens while I'm entering a masked password on a website,
for example.



My symptom freezes the whole screen for a few seconds, maybe as many as five. During the freeze nothing than be done, even video from tvtime is kaput, but audio continues. The freeze was initiated when moving the mouse between open windows, causing a focus shift. Very annoying!

I followed Rajko's link above and tried a one-click dbus upgrade from this
repository:

http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/rwooninck:/testing-knm4/openSUSE_11.3/

So far, this seems to have fixed the problem on my 64-bit Nvidia system! Thanks to everyone for the pointers.

Regards,
Lew
