I also had serious problems with 7664 -- it wouldn't freeze the system
but X would go up to about 98% CPU in top, and X would be
non-responsive. I could ssh in and kill X, which brought the machine
back, but that's really not acceptable. It would do this in two
situations: whenever I tried to watch video, and whenever I tried to
bring up a text display with ctrl-alt-1. I reverted to 6629 and
everything is stable again.... shame though.
