That just sounds like every Windows experience that I've ever had. Doesn't matter if it's EC2 or on a machine in my office.

I've never used EC2 though. I do know a few people that use Linux on EC2 and I haven't heard of any problems from them. Do you have a *nix instance on EC2 that does the same thing?
