I experience a lock-up related to the XWin clipboard about 
once a day. Windows applications that I tried to paste to 
only continue after killing XWin (shutdown often doesn't work then).
I run nothing special (like gdb), just an xterm and Word or PowerPoint.

This is just to confirm your observation, I have no further analysis.
