In an rxvt, I see:
Oops: 0000  SMP

In syslog, I find this:

After this event, the mouse will still move in X, but the keyboard is ignored
(including Ctrl-Alt-Backspace and Ctrl-Alt-F1). Program menus (e.g. Firefox)
still work, but GNOME's own menus don't. I have to power off to shut down.
System is an HP DV6100 series using a Turion 64. Kernel version is
linux-image-2.6.24-1-amd64. Modules are listed in the log above.
Any suggestions? Maybe just upgrade to 2.6.25?

Scientists are people, too. IOW, they also "crave power, money,
respect, and influence, and they also fear for their jobs. Each
can be a healthy motivator, but each has the ability to turn a
good scientist into a bad one; and in some cases, they can turn
a good scientist into a charlatan."
