But these also seem unlikely, as it's a hardware signal from the video board to the monitor.  The suggestion of an X screensaver causing the lockup was excellent.  Even if you have no screensavers, there are other things that could be triggered, like xlock.

Not sure I understand what you're getting at.  By "other things that could be triggered" what do you mean?  e.g. xclock obviously gets "triggered" at least once per minute; you're suggesting that event could be causinging an update request while blanked out that is causing trouble?
