I can say more about this problem now.
when this happens, all frames ignore the keyboard except for the comint frame
(inferior ocaml, lisp, bash &c) which do respond.
i.e., I can type into the ocaml interaction buffer and then, after I do that,
other frames see the keyboard again too.
alas, if this happens when I do not have an interactive buffer, my only
recourse it so kill emacs...

every now and then the keyboard is ignored for a while, then everything is back to normal. mouse works: I can select, paste, use menus (including undo), but the keyboard is silently ignored: I can type into xterm (actually, gnome terminal), thunderbird (like I am doing now), caps lock and num lock work fine - but emacs does not respond to any keypresses (including C-g and C-]). loadavg is 0. I cannot figure out what triggers this behavior and why the keyboard input resumes (usually, after a few minutes of inactivity). I am running under gdb, so if you tell me where to look, we can probably debug this problem together.
