My frontend system locks up completely when either entering or leaving
the EPG. I am using 0.20 installed from binary on dapper; a PIV with
Nvidia 5200 PCI, 512MB Ram, no HD. Sounds similar to your problem. But
I don't know how to use gdb. 

Maybe Magic Sys Key
could help? You could at least sync logs to disk befor you reboot. 

I would care very much to know if you find a fix!

Good luck
