I am seeing lockups on my wife's a810n system (AMD Athelon 64) running
32 bit.  I am leary of 64 bit until I get the 32 bit working since I am
more familiar with it, and currently it seems that some stuff is still
not 64 bit.

	I did find a couple of memory errors, but reseating the memory sticks
seems to have cleared that up (12 hour run no errors).  It works longer
and with fewer problems.  Screen updates seem to drag a bit, but I see
that someone mentioned disabling Pango for firefox, so maybe that is the
problem.  I will see if Pango is running on that system.

	But the hangs are real.
