Nope. There's a pty in between, and the pty buffer is much bigger than
just a few lines, so even if an xterm is hung, the program displaing on an
xterm wouldn't be affected normally (unless it reads from the tty or
outputs several kB of data).

So it's either a kernel scheduling problem, or Crossover running with RT
priority and screwing up.
