Default X11 just froze, and /var/log/syslog (dmesg)'s output seems to mean something

Hi,

I realized that my computer (this one, Debian Lenny, w. k.
2.6.26-2-686-bigmem) was frozen. I tried escaping from the screensaver,
but nothing worked, except launching another tty, and restarting gdm.
Here is the interesting output I obtained by looking at /var/log/syslog
and dmesg:

==
[24892.623421] atkbd.c: Unknown key pressed (translated set 2, code 0xbb
on isa0060/serio0).
[24892.623421] atkbd.c: Use 'setkeycodes e03b <keycode>' to make it known.
[24892.691424] atkbd.c: Unknown key released (translated set 2, code
0xbb on isa0060/serio0).
[24892.691424] atkbd.c: Use 'setkeycodes e03b <keycode>' to make it known.
==

and

Could it be that? What should it mean?

Thanks.

(...)

That seems to be unrelated with a X freeze. Looks like a keyboard key
mapping error but nothing serious.

Just review your "/var/log/Xorg.0.log". If X crashed there must something
there :-?

Nothing really interesting there. Just:

==
AUDIT: Tue May 18 18:01:04 2010: 3716 X: client 33 rejected from local host (uid 0)
Auth name: MIT-MAGIC-COOKIE-1 ID: -1
==
but 18:01:24 seems to be when I asked to restart gdm.

Note that I do not think that X crashed entirely. I just mean that the
screen was looking like frozen, but screensaver was still
moving... slowly, or sometimes really slowly.

Nothing more in the rest of the "/var/log/Xorg.x.log" files?

Next time it happens, go to a tty and type "top" to list the processes in
use. Sort the table by CPU cycles and/or memory use. The slowness could
be caused by a "rampant" program consuming a lot of resources.

No. Weird.
