It's probably just a stuck X grab - Ctrl+Alt+F1 to a virtual console, and 
run "killall -9 gnorpm" from there, may fix it. Or ssh in from another machine 
and do the killall, or worst-case only kill X with Ctrl+Alt+Backspace.

gnorpm is no longer present in 8.0 precisely because it was very buggy, 
we aren't releasing further updates for it at this point.
