[Bug 509632] [NEW] ubuntu freezes too often


You have been subscribed to a public bug:

Binary package hint: xorg

Sometimes, usually once-twice a day, my Ubuntu freezes.
Everything seems blocked: keyboard, mouse, screen.
Ctrl+Alt+Fx does not work, so I can't open another terminal.
The only key that is recognized is AltGr+SysReq+B, which reboots my machine.

Apparently, the bug appears independently on the application I am using.

Other possibly useful informations:
on my machine (a laptop Acer Aspire 5612) there is Ubuntu 9.10 installed. I have installe KDE, too, using kubuntu-desktop. I have (more or less) always the following programs opened: Firefox, Thunderbird, Kile, Nautilus, Gnome-terminal, Skype. The graphic card is:
$ lspci|grep -i vga
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Mobile 945GM/GMS, 943/940GML Express Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 03)

The real problem is that I cannot imagine whose package is the fault!

This bug seems related with

ubuntu-bug seems not to work here, so that I can't attach its output (to
be precise, the lauchpad site fails, and tells me: Ooops! Something just
went wrong in Lauchpad.)
