not related to xscreensaver in my case, I don't think.  It was locking up 
while playing video in xine which - afaik - disables the screensaver.  As 
always, X lock ups are hard to track down unfortunately.  On the plus side, it 
doesn't seem to be a hard lock up - i.e. the power button would still get me 
to a clean shutdown eventually, but interrupts didn't fire anymore (at least 
the network stops working).  I can't attach a serial console at the moment to 
get into DDB.  Will try to, tomorrow.
