Gnome freezes- how can I escape?
I'm running debian lenny and have a problem. When the screensaver comes on, it will eventually freeze. No key stroke or mouse wobble will activate the desktop. So i went to look at my screensavers settings. When I open the screensavers preferences window, it freezes my entire gnome session. Any clues as to what's going on? Also, in the short run, how can I escape from a frozen gnome session (EVERYTHING is frozen, including gnome-terminal) without a hard reboot?
