I was suffering intermittent lockups of the oS 11.2 gnome system when idle.
Only available recover route was power cycle then filesystem rebuild.

I believe these are caused by the photopile screensaver, as I saw this
screensaver loading, get to 71% and then lockup.

I have gnome as the desktop under gdm with the screensaver set as "random". I
have x-screensavers + gnome-screensavers installed.

I've removed this screensaver (deleted the files) and the lockups have (so far)

I have no evidence from the lockups of exactly what was happening - nothing in
the system logs, no dumps (computer was still running).

Is there any way I can collect evidence about whether this was the culprit and
about why it was failing?

Reproducible: Sometimes

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Wait!
2. wait some more!
Actual Results:
Sometime it locks up.

No log entries. No dump produced.

I have a large collection of print quality photos from a variety of sources on
this computer.
