do you have a samba partition mounted ?
This was the only problem i ever had with 2.8 and looking after it , it end up
being the kernel driver at fault (using gnome smb:// vfs to access samba share
and the problem vanished.
It does not freeze all applications, only those that use gnome-vfs to acess
files (gedit, nautilus for example).
I don't know what you meant by "unresponsive" menu action ... what happens ?
When you open the menu and browse the applications , does it freeze ? Or is the
problem that when you click nothing happens, but the menu otherwise works ?
What are "menu actions" ? i know only of the click action .
