You logged in as a new user and didn't have the problems you see in your

be a errant config setting in your user login. If it were a driver issue
it would affect any user that logged in.

That assumes any user's config triggers the driver problem.

That notwithstanding:

Bob, just a thought - you don't have any slideshow Frame applets displaying
large images do you? I accidentally pointed 4.3's Frame at a folder of
18MP images once and the huge pixmaps sent to my weedy graphics card
caused the X server to hang up for a second or two whenever the image
changed. Haven't checked to see if it still occurs though.


No slideshows. Big images only get opened in Digikam or Gimp, and they're not
running unless needed. I have two monitors, running in twinhead mode,
displaying 8 desktops with effects such as rotating desktop cube active. I've
tried switching off effects, without it making any difference, but I'll try
again now ...

... nope, still getting freezes, associated with activity spikes visible in
gkrellm, usually in the fourth core, but sometimes others.
