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.
