I noticed something similiar, with the VMware Workstation 6.5 Beta
I thought this was just a bug in the beta but maybe it's somewhere in

For example sometimes I just rsync a whole system to another one.
and then it seems to hang like you experience it.
But if I then just hide the window and unhide it again, then it get's
updated once.
I had to do it a few times to check if rsync was finished or not.
So the system was still running it was just the graphic output in my
case which wasn't updated.

Hm unfortunately I don't know if in my case the network still worked or
If it happens again for me I try to find more about it.

On my native real Debian sid/experimental system I hadn't this problem
