I've seen the exact same thing too.  A quick 'killall esd' fixes things,
but I guess it shouldn't be happening in the first place.

Anyone make a suggestion on where to start debugging this.  Would a
hardware profile be a good start, or do we need a backtrace of esd (and
how do we get this), or is esd just an innocent bystander.

I'm willing to try and debug, but not sure were to start.
