I have a strange problem; every once in a while, everything 'freezes' or 'hangs up' for up to half a minute. Except for the mouse, which is able to be moved around, but nothing is responding to clicks or keyboard presses of any sort. I am using the Cinnamon build.
It seems mostly to occur when having my USB headset (a Creative fatal1ty headset) plugged in and pressing (sometimes just mousing over) the menu-panel. But other times it seems like nothing in particular triggered it. The headset does work its intended purpose and plays audio and controls the volume fine.

I'm sort-a new to Linux so be gentle. I'm placing this in the "other"-forum, as I wasn't sure where it belonged.
