Hi Gary,

We have the same problem I'm afraid.
Using ltsp-server-5.4.5-24.elg.x86_64 but with 32 bit clients. Atom
processors in the clients with at least 1GByte RAM.
Usually work reliably once logged in.

Also cannot shutdown or reboot the client. Tried some suggestions from
the list, but they didn't help.

Things seem to have got worse recently, and I don't have the skills to
try and fix it, we do IT support for small businesses and web/database apps.

Now trying Debian Wheezy with LTSP - just works, so looks like I shall
jump ship.
