I'll try tonight. Sometimes I don't have a crash for a few days and
sometimes there are three or four in a row.
Culprits seem to be:
1. Evolution (just typing will do it).
2. Mozilla (haven't switched to firefox).
3. Gnome - focus or cut-and-paste in a gnome-terminal.
4. X-screensaver - once or twice system crashes while I am away.
tqvm for your follow-up ...
I think the problem is due to X + ATI drivers + Kernel allows write to
memory that it shouldn't ... I tried etch a few months ago and it still
crashed then but that would be an older kernel.
