interestingly, gerard van dongen and i witnessed the exact same
behaviour on the machines rented for our workshop on ardour at DEAF in
rotterdam last week. however, these machines weren't running ardour or
JACK at the time - any time they went into the X screensaver, it
appeared, they died in this way. they were running a reasonably recent
Gentoo distribution.

>I think the blinking is just a sign for a hard crash.

is there evidence of this anywhere? neither gerard or i had ever seen
this pattern of flashing LEDs.
