Hey Guys

I am getting a empty desktop occasionally when closing programs. Usually this occurs when I have been running program X (does not seem to be program dependant) for a while. The top and bottom task bars are functioning and I can switch desktops all with no affect. Login/logout and switching users (including root) does zip. The only recent changes to the system were to add a 2nd ethernet card (using natsemi driver) and nfs. I was looking at bonding the ethernet cards with little success. The only odd thing that I have spotted is that awk has an entry in system-monitor that is three times as tall as all other entries. Any body seen this or know a cure? Is there a work around so I do not have to reboot?

Thanks
Lazlow
