Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Just use xwindows for between 1-5 hours and it eventually stops working
Actual Results: Mouse stops at current location and wont move. The mouse always appers to be a carrot (I hope I have the terminology right it's the same when on an textbox in the browser).
