We have three hardware-identical machines (Lenovo Think Centre) at work,
all three running a more or less up-to-date wheezy -- all three Intel
graphics.. Two of them running GNOME-shell, one KDE -- only the GNOME
machines show this kind of behavior. Whenever I had a chance to get on
the console (only the X-session froze) I wasn't able to figure out what
component was responsible: no signififcant CPU-load, no obvious problems
-- hard to figure out who is is at fault.
