Just a "me too" (TM-AOL). In my case I see one application, gkrellm,
locking up things. It is stuck in a run state (literally Rs), but is
consuming almost no CPU and can't be killed. kill-9 is simply ignored.

I can only get out of gnome with CRTL-ALT-BS and, when I shout down the
system, I am notified that one or more processes can't be killed. I'm
sure that it is referring to gkrellm.

The problem started sometime after March 31. I have backed up to April 5
and I am still seeing the problem. I will continue to try to track down
exactly when it started as time permits.

Is this the same problem?
