I now think it must be the vid card as I have had the system running
seti in a terminal since the last mail...I find if I change apps too
quickly or call an app whilst another is installing the box freezes
or as I mentioned before delete mail in Thunderbird too quuickly it
freezes..Wonder if you can try this and see if you get the same
result...I sent myself 20 mails then deleted them quickly and it froze,
deleting them slowly the system kept going...
