I am still experiencing problems, I will give more details later
(notably three 'free(): invalid pointer ' at 0x10028188, 0x100281b0
and 0x100281c0 when calling dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xfree86-dbg).
With respect to CPU frequency scaling, I am not using this (800 MHz
all the time) and if I were using it, it would be against my will (how
to check it is not enabled by some package?).
Notice that the lock-ups do not freeze the system, only the X server
(well, it is quite a bit annoying) that takes 99 % of CPU and is
impossible to kill. The only possibility to regain control is to
remotely log onto the machine and to ask for a reboot.
Thanks for your help,
