I never had any problems with other applications, even games that extensively use openGL. Other than that my system seems stable.
Dosbox is a IBM-PC Emulator designed to play old dos games (
It uses openGL (as one of several options) to hardware accelerate scaling of the graphics output. I can also turn of openGL in which case I don't experience any problems.
So it seems openGL related also (AFAIK mplay also uses openGL).

With dosbox the problem is very indeterministic so I couldn't track down a function sequence causing the hang. Sometimes it launches fine for many times (especially if you try to debug it ;-) and then I get it twice.

PS: If you still think the problem is a different one i will post this again in a new thread tomorrow when I come back

Many thanks!
