This has happened to me only once with Gnome, but lots with KDE.
What I do is telnet (or ssh) to the locked up machine from another machine,
and issue a reboot command (or telinit 1) that way.  It is better than hitting
the reboot button on the machine that is locked up.

Are you running Woody or Potato?  I am staying away from most of Woody for a
few months to a year, until it is stable.
