[Bug 815996] Re: Desktop occasionally freezes/locks up when switching workspaces


I am having the same issue, and it seems to happen when I'm switching
workspace using Ctrl-Alt-[arrow] shortcuts. My screen doesn't freeze mid
slide, but it freezes after it has slided to the next screen. I followed
your method to back out to the terminal (Ctrl+Alt+F1) but when I press
(Alt+F7) all I get is a blank screen. Can you confirm with me if it's
Alt+F7 or Ctrl+Alt+F7?

While in console, I use "/etc/init.d/gdm restart" to get back to the
desktop but this is no better than restarting the computer as I have to
reopen all my apps!

(Just speculation for now) It does not seem to happen when I switch
workspaces using Expo mode, Super+W, although I've only been using it
for half a day (avoiding Ctrl+Alt+[arrow]) as of writing this.

I'm using nvidia GTX465 with nvidia drivers from ubuntu's repository.

I'll submit my apport-collect in awhile. If there's anything I can help
to diagnose this issue let me know.
