Etch on a U60 freezes predictably if you either (a) put a break on the serial port (fixed upstream), (b) run xnest (appears fixed in Lenny) or (c) allow IceApe/IceWeasel to pass a document to OpenOffice (appears fixed in Lenny).

The freezing I am talking of ONLY happens to the Ultra 80, my both U60s
are running fine with debian. This email comes from a U60 running lenny.
The situation is the following: booting U80, logging into gdm, doing
nothing --> U80 freezes after a while.

We definitely do not have a freeze of that nature on a U80 running Lenny.

$ cat /proc/openprom/banner-name
Ultra-80 (4 X UltraSPARC-II 450MHz)
$ uptime
 11:16:11 up 52 days,  7:41,  1 user,  load average: 2.03, 1.56, 1.41

That machine has a couple of Creator-3Ds in it. I think the first thing you have to determine is whether the entire machine is locking up or just the GUI: I've seen cases on both U60 and U80 running Etch/Lenny where a local copy of KDE (i.e. a desktop on the machine's own screens, rather than accessed via VNC or remote X) locks up but killing it over SSH fixes things. My suspicion there is a DCOP problem locking up ICE, /possibly/ caused by non-standard tab names in Konsole.
