[Pkg-xfce-devel] Bug#549604: System does not react to user input, must be switched off and rebooted

Package: xfce4
Severity: important

System: Debian testing, installed 2009/10/01
         kernel 2.6.30-1-686
         Fujitsu Lifebook E8110 (Intel Core Duo T2300)

The following happened twice in the last two days while working with xfce4:
- The system does not react to any keyboard input. Switching to a virtual  
console is not possible. Pressing ctrl+alt+del has no effect.
- The mouse cursor moves when moving the mouse, but the system does not  
react to mouse clicks. Buttons show no reaction when the mouse moves over  
- Plugging and unplugging usb sticks does not start thunar, as it normally  
The system load plugin did not show increased system load.

The first time this happened I was scrolling the scroll bar of Terminal,  
the second time I was browsing in the project properties window of Eclipse.

I found no way to reproduce this bug. Also, I am not sure whether this bug  
is related to xfce4; it might also be a bug in hal or the hal  

I installed Debian testing by dist-upgrading from a minimal lenny install  
only last week.
