Fluxbox eats 100% of CPU after slackpkg upgrade-all

I think the title says quite a bit. I'm using a Toshiba 2415-S205, upgrading from slackware 11 to current using slackpkg. Using kernel linux-

I was trying to upgrade my computer to slackware current. After slackpkg upgrade-all it told me that the following two packages could not be installed because they could not be found on my mirror:

Everything else worked perfectly, though. No kernel panics or unrecoverable errors. However when I use fluxbox (I haven't tried using any other DE yet) gkrellm and top both say that fluxbox is using 100% CPU power and an absurd amount of time.

I tried upgrading and reinstalling fluxbox but with no luck. The problem still exists.

I hope I included enough info for you guys to help me. If not, I'll post whatever else is needed. Thanks for reading this far!

Edit: My slackpkg mirror is easynews

FALSE ALARM! I assumed that when I exited fluxbox it was actually terminating the process and that when I started it back up it was refreezing. I was wrong. Apparently fluxbox just ran away on me. "killall -9 fluxbox | startx " seemed to fix everything. I'll take the time to diagnose my problem better next time. *ducks*
