gpm was a likely candidate, but that didn't fix it.
Restarting X didn't bring back the ADB either.

I only changed 2 thing when this behaviour began. Installed extra
RAM and added a second swap partition.

I think I have found the answer. It seems my setup with 2 swap
partitions on separate IDE drives made something very unstable. It
doesn't make sense that 2 swaps would lock up the ADB. But, after
rebooting with the new swap partion only, the ADB was able to stay
up even under intense CPU load and paging.

Does anyone else run an old world with multiple swap partitions?


I've loaded 2.2r5 (potato) with two swap partitions and it seems to run fine but I've yet to get everything up and running. It is on a NuBus Mac which is rather idiosyncratic.
