It might be. I have a somewhat similar problem, but only when I'm running 
the GNOME desktop. If you can try running either XFCE or KDE, or anything 
else that's not GNOME, see if that makes the problem go away (as it does 
for me). If that doesn't help, it is probably not the same thing. You 
said "locking up resources". In my case, top shows pan using a high 
percentage of the CPU and sometimes a lot of memory, and in bad cases, it 
has gone on for hours. I'm running Ubuntu 8.10, by the way.
