Actually I did end up trying something like that, so it is now fully updated...

Here's a few conditions I've discovered:

When I log in it seems I have 10-25 minutes before it locks.
If I don't log (leave at login screen) in it does not lock up, but it
locks up almost immediately when I do log in.
It's seems to only be a GUI lock. I can SSH into the machine, however
top doesn't show any process using 100% cpu.

Any and all ideas are appreceated. This is actually the wife's laptop
which I recently converted to linux. She was a happy F9 user but when
my preupgrade upgrade went so well on my laptop I decided to upgrade
her's as well. Needless to say she's less than thrilled right now.

Thanks,
Richard
