This happens when I am inside vi or when just using the shell, but it happens 
randomly. Symptoms are the same, shell freezes can't input anything. But if 
you input anything it seems the process running can see the input as in the 
vi case. This is with Pardus Linux 2007.2 + glibc 2.6 which I don't think 
that well-known yet.

If I can do anything to help debugging it further, please let me know.
