Neither of those sound like my problem - I just suddenly discover that my 
mouse and keyboard are not being read.  Sometimes gkrellm shows a total 
freeze, but I'm fairly sure that there have been other times when normal 
activity has been occurring behind the scenes.  Either way, despite waiting to 
see whether the problem goes away, the only way out is to power off.

This is an ATi X600 graphics card.  At first I had the OSS ati driver, then I 
added flgrx in case I was trying to do something that really needed 
acceleration.  Not being a gamer, I have little experience of using graphics 
acceleration.

Basically, the effects I was trying to use were Dim Inactive Windows and Cover 
Switch.  The system is rock-solid if I don't enable Desktop Effects.
