I can make this happen repeatedly on a 2.2.18 if I only have a small
amount of mem left and I do a Netscape (4.7) "Find" on a large file,
but for me it only lasts a minute or two.
I always figured it was because the system was thrashing, I'll bet
you have the same problem considering the cause (xv thumb) you saw.
