I've been consistently able to lock up my system (no nothing--not even
keyboard lights toggling) with 2.2.1 & 2.2.2 , Accelerated X 1.2 , and
Netscape 4.0b5, by starting Netscape, going to my bookmarks, and rapidly
moving the mouse (with button down) over the menu items.  After a few
seconds of this, the system freezes solid (almost all disk IO stops, music
playing in the background ends, capslock no longer toggles capslock light,
ctrl-alt-del no longer works, mouse doesn't move).

Has anyone experienced this behavior before, either with Accelerated X or
with XFree?

Whatever's happening, Netscape should *not* be able to hose down a system
in this way.  I'm using the BSDI 2.x version; maybe that's part of the
problem, but I suspect AccelX (I guess I should check to see if there's a
new version).
