I don't launch it the same way -- I do it through the action menu
(MOD+a by default) -- but I do get the same problem sometimes. I
haven't had it seize up entirely. Sometimes it looks like everything
is crashed because nothing responds, but typing my password and
pressing enter returns everything to normal. I'd like to have the
screen-blanking part of the program work all the time, though.
