So does this happen outside of Gnome or X?  I find that OSX also
hangs, but after an idle period of time.  I have not attempted to
alleviate the problem there.

Also, Can you ssh into localhost?  Sometimes the TERM can screw things
up for me .. so on the above mentioned OSX, I'll have to set TERM to
be xterm instead of xterm-color because I get a 'terminal not
recognized' type of error.

Hope this helps!
