2.6.23.1-49.fc8 here. I'm currently yum-update'ing and will check when
done.

The interesting fact is that I don't encounter the periodical hang
within XFCE or KDE, only from GNOME.

For the sake of the archives: a passive way to feel it is to watch at a
cpu monitor graph for one minute w/o doing anything else: you'll see
short activity peaks very 15sec. Another way is to constantly make use
of the window manager, like moving windows, changing workspace,
rolling/unrolling menus and you'll feel something not natural ;-).
