Not sure I follow...do you mean to say that unloading evdev will cause
the freezing to stop?

I just did an `aptitude upgrade` & rebooted my machine into a
framebuffer console, have yet to start up X. I'm now typing away in
Vim & using Mutt, and am seeing the same infernal freezing behaviour.
Could Xorg be responsible for these problems, even though X is not
running? The Nvidia & nouveau drivers don't apply in my case:
% lspci | grep Graphics
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Mobile 4 Series Chipset Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 07)
00:02.1 Display controller: Intel Corporation Mobile 4 Series Chipset Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 07)
Also, after an `aptitude upgrade` last week I've begun to hear
periodic ~500ms gaps in audio while listening to music. In the past
I've *never* heard the audio skip. Not sure if this is related to the
display freeze-ups...who knows.
Again, my past postings on this issue:
