    If the system hardware hangs and I can think of at least one reason it
    might do exactly that then all bets are off

    Three starting points

    1. Run memtest86 on the box for a bit. I don't think its bad RAM however
    2. Plug in a PS/2 mouse if the box doesn't have one already. That avoids
    a hardware flaw on the AMD that we don't current work around in software
    3. Check if 2.4.20 behaves the same way. I think it may fix your short
    pauses but I don't think its going to fix the hang alas. It would be
    useful to know however
