Seth, I have.  I have a toshiba 1135-S155 laptop running rawhide.  I've
noticed that several times as I am composing an email in evolution or once
in openoffice, the system will freeze.  The disk light is solid.  If I am
quick, I can get to a virtual terminal as X is locked.  The top process is
kswapd0.  It happens randomly.  I have not been able to determine if this
happens only when RAM is getting full, or if VM is getting full.  I can
get it to stop ONLY when I am in the vertual term and I wait for kswapd0
to stop.  Then I can go back to X and work.  I have no idea what the
underlying problem is.  I first thought it was OO and fonts because the
problem went away when I changed all of the fonts in teh document to be
the same.  But then it has happened in evolution, so I do not know any
more.
