Me too.  I've had this under FC2 ever since it came out.  But I could
never figure out a good way of reproducing it.

For me, additional symptoms where that some gtk1 apps (take, say, xmms
or vncviewer) suddenly were using a font like courier.  At other times,
I had the same problem as you - the whole machine locking up, and only
logging in remotely and restarting xfs would help.

It's quite maddening, since I never found a trigger for it allowing me
to reproduce it.  But you're not seeing ghosts.
