I had the same problem on a different machine with a former version of
ardour. Sometimes X crashed and oter times it rendered the machine
completely unresponsive so I had to do a reset. I had the same problem
with 3 different distributions (Demudi, Gentoo, Planet-CCRMA) and with
different windowmanagers.

My guess was that it happend because of too less Ram (in this case 128
MB). I have not had this problem on my current machine (1 GB) yet.

Hope this may help.
