Thanks David for the feedback.

I haven't tried any other desktop environment -- and don't have
time to fiddle around with them. But still my desktop environment is
**very minimal**:
* Window Manager -- i3wm;
* terminal -- urxvt with screen;
* no XDM, no PulseAudio, (only local DBus), no NetworkManager, no thrills;
* pretty much a heavily trimmed down ArchLinux; (actually except
the minimum necessary daemons to run the system (i.e. udev,
wpa_supplicant, dhcpcd, agetty) and some stable userspace tools (i.e.
ssh-agent, gpg-agent) there isn't much else; I've weeded out
everything I don't necessarily need...)

As such I'm not sure where to "point" the "blame". Aaa... It seems
that Firefox still crashes even with 2.6.38. But the other problems I
haven't encountered... So I blame Firefox for itself dying, maybe i3wm
for the mouse thinggy (which if I restart X is solved), but for the
OpenSSL stuff?


P.S.: 3.1.0 was **very very very** unstable for me... It just
froze in a matter of minutes... (Not even SysRq+O doesn't solve the
