    It's now biten me too on 2.1.128. The one possibly helpful observation
    that I made when playing with the machine was that changing the virtual
    console to another one and back in most cases made unfrooze formerly stuck
    processes which before that just seemed to be stuck. I'll try to gather
    some more information when it hits me again, but the bug hits me only
    every two days or so.
