Thanks for your reply! I did some more testing last night, and I was able to gradually open a bazillion programs at once, jacking up ram usage to 40% with no slowdown.  I still don't know what's causing this, but I'm going to try to systematically work through some boot options. 

Would it be worth trying an older version of DSL? I ran into this with puppy; some of the newer versions didn't work when updated.

Thanks again,

I don't know whether this is a clue, but the hang appears to occur whenever ram usage goes above 6% (20 out of 313MB).  This happens in several situations- toram, live CD, from my frugal install, etc.

Thanks in advance for the help,

4.11 RC2 on an IBM 600x, 32G RAM, 40G HD. PS/2 3-button mouse.  I'm new to DSL, but have used Ubuntu, Mint, and Puppy.

Shortly after the desktop comes up, the mouse buttons stop working, although I can still move the cursor around. I've noticed it with several apps such as Dillo, EmelFM and the DSLPanel.  I Ctrl-Alt-Del and "startx" again, but the same thing keeps happening.  It happens with a frugal install, LiveCD, toram, xvesa, fbox, etc. Huh

Any ideas?  Let me know what other info I can post to help.
