I admit that was a bit unprecise. What happens is that sometimes the X
Server stops responding, meanwhile there's A LOT of hard disk activity
(swapping?). I also encountered the situation that the window
decorations (symbols for closing, minimizing, etc.) are gone and
basically just about all KDE functionality is unavailable, i can only
see the topmost window (and i think that windows from different desktops
were mixed into one desktop too). In this situation i also got some log
entries in Strg+Alt+F12 saying smth. about HighMem, wich was full.

I will report on that shortly, after i was able to do those test. Though
i dont think it could be thermal problems since i had no problems at all
witch my second gentoo installation (gentoo-i386).


Thanks for all those proposals and good night from germany for now.  :-)
