Description Clark Williams 2002-10-17 16:15:01 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.0+) Gecko/20020519

Description of problem:
Desktop becomes unresponsive, windows fail to refresh, keyboard stops working. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot 2.4.18-17.7.x kernel
2. Login
3. startx
4. start a gnome-terminal
5. run Settings->Preferences
6. No dialog will appear.

Actual Results:  Windows stop responding. 'esd' shown at 99% of CPU. A 'killall
esd' while ssh'ed into the box will "fix" the problem, but gnome-terminal
windows have weird fonts (very tiny, although preferences state courier new 10pt)

When the X desktop is started, sometimes it will not get past starting X server
(only observed while on battery). When powered, the desktop starts, but windows
refuse to refresh, will not iconify/deiconify, drag. Sometimes the keyboard
works (Ctl-Alt-Bkspc) to kill X, sometimes power cycle required. Mouse cursor
responds, but mouse clicks usually don't work. Gnome-terminal using very tiny
font. Kernel is still running (login via SSH ok).

Expected Results:  X desktop should have functioned normally (as with 2.4.18-10
