I did that a coupla days ago.  This has been one of those "work on it for a
few minutes here and there" problems for several days.  I think it  still
hung even from a text console.  Otherwise I would have used that as the
workaround until I figured out the actual problem.

But for now I'm calling it the !#@$& proprietary ATI driver.  I've done
several builds since I went back to the free radeon driver and no problems
so far.  Grrr.

I was really liking GNOME Shell, but I can live with XFCE.  It sure seems
fast now.
