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. > nothing that leaps out at me... - try mousing over chrome - does the pointer > change? Nope, as mentioned above. This is part of the reason i thought it looked like no windows were getting focus. > the fact the restart request works means e's event loop is working and > processing events. you didn't try the gdb thing i mentioned right?

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?
