Ok, I haven't been following the lists closely for a few weeks, so I was 
  afraid I might have missed something important, like "don't do that".

I've been having occasional complete lockups ... I can't reproduce them 
and can't get any debug info. Sometimes alt-sysrq let's me reboot, but 
not always. I can't see anything because it happens in X. If it happens 
again I'll get another box connected on a serial console and see if I 
can grab anything that way. (I guess I _should_ do that _before_ it 
happens again ... guess I'm being optimistic.)

I don't have concrete evidence, but my gut says it's mozilla 
thunderbird. In part because it crashed a few minutes ago on my first 
draft of this message, but also because it's been flaky. and last time a 
complete lockup happened some of my mail ended up named 
/var/lib/dpkg/status ...

anyway, Thanks for the answer. I guess I've been sitting here listening 
to the laconf2 streams (and scripted random mixes of them 8) ) too long. 
sorry to go on rambling.

/me isn't even an ardour user, yet.
