I just ran a yum update and got a whole lot of updates. I then rebooted and
logged in. I got my whole desktop with all icons, etc, and then the system
froze. The animated ring around the cursor froze, I could still move the
pointer around, no reaction to keyboard (including ctrl-alt-F2 and ctrl-alt-del)

I rebooted the hard way and selected the previous kernel. Everything worked
fine. Then back to the -115 kernel and everything was still ok. Tried once
more to be sure and it's still behaving just fine.

This is a system with nouveau graphics in case that matters. I am airing
this here to check if this is something someone else has seen. When I have
had this kind of lockups earlier it has been repeatable in some way :-)
