not related to xscreensaver in my case, I don't think. It was locking up
while playing video in xine which - afaik - disables the screensaver. As
always, X lock ups are hard to track down unfortunately. On the plus side, it
doesn't seem to be a hard lock up - i.e. the power button would still get me
to a clean shutdown eventually, but interrupts didn't fire anymore (at least
the network stops working). I can't attach a serial console at the moment to
get into DDB. Will try to, tomorrow.
