I've opened a bug report about this :

Speaking with some other Fedora Core users here in the office, I realized
that _all_ of them had seen these symptoms at least once, but as they don't
have the sufficient knowledge to troubleshoot the problem, their solution
at the time was to restart their computer...


Clean custom Red Hat Linux rpm packages : http://freshrpms.net/
Fedora Core release 3 (Heidelberg) - Linux kernel 2.6.9-1.681_FC3.r300
Load : 1.42 1.19 1.62
