That didn't turn out to be the answer either. Eventually things broke,
though not as hard as with gnome. At least one of my file systems got
set read only.
My theory now is that using desktop graphics is triggering a kernel
bug. I am going to try out an older kernel and see if I can get it
to work. This may not work too well with later video drivers with the
KMS changes, but seems worth trying out.
