No it shouldn't thats bad, but I think its an app or window manager thing..
rather than linux itself.. its not happening here on a 256MB machine.. after
a whole day of work (definitions of work may vary ;)
(I use 2.2.19 kernel now as it is a suggested security upgrade IIRC, but the
system was stable under 2.2.18pre21 a few weeks ago to)..
I don't use kde I use a custom hack of blackbox as a window manager.. and
never run netscape.. That seemed to be the trick this end..
