The cursor remains the default E cursor, as if the mouse was not
hovering over any window. When clicking, the outline of the cursor
blinks with a blue outline, just as it does when clicking on the
desktop, except no menu appears. This happens no matter which window
(or the desktop) the cursor is over.

Nope, as mentioned above. This is part of the reason i thought it
looked like no windows were getting focus.

I do have access to a Windows laptop with Putty to ssh in. Should the
"attach" part happen before or during a freeze-up? And how do i
actually attach a running E process to gdb and set the breakpoint?
