tony -- thanks for this. if you could, please open a trac ticket (bug
report) at http://dev.laptop.org to describe this issue. the next
time it occurs, in order to more simply gather most of the information
bernie asked for, plus a little more that may be useful, please run
the command "olpc-log" from a Terminal window. this will create a
file called "logs.<serial_no>.<timestamp>.tar.bz2" in your current
directory. please attach that file to the trac ticket. in fact,
please run the command twice -- once during the "locked up" period,
and again after, and attach both files. possibly overkill, but might
(the "olpc-log" command takes an fairly long time to run, but it collects
lots of information.)
