"When using the Compiz Window manager, sometimes, the whole system freezes.
However the apps go on working in background. For example, The amarokl goes
on playing the playlist. The interface hangs down and the system even stops
responding to all the ctrl + Alt combinations like ctrl+alt+f1 and
ctrl+alt+[backspace] etc and there is no way to get the system to the normal
state.

I am using the openSUSE 10.3 system G965 chipset with X3000 as the GFX
controller. Any way out.

The problem is not so frequent but has happened at a couple of critical
times and I have lost some important work."
