Help Debugging a Freeze

http://forums.fedoraforum.org – Hi all, I need assistance debugging a particularly pernicious issue I've been having. I'm running Fedora 17, but the problem has been occurring since 16. My system will occasionally freeze. The mouse remains responsive, but Gnome/all applications are frozen, can't click on anything, etc. This seems to be in some way related to memory use, since it only occurs if I'm over about 2.3 GB used (out of 3.3 GB used total) and will typically occur quite rapidly once I cross that boundary. It does not seem to be associated with any particular program I have open that I have been able to find, (HowTos)
