Yeah I've still got fmutex locks in gnome-shell (totally frozen UI until
a kill -9 which quite freqnently results in a respawn with a similarly
frozen UI) and it does sometimes just crash and restart itself at
random. Also seen similar problems to those you describe with firefox too.

I'm tempted to blame mesa to some degree, but no real evidence :)
