Statler has suddenly started freezing

view story

http://crunchbang.org – Recently Statler began freezing (music continues playing, mouse still moves, all else is frozen). One of my recent changes may be to blame - 1. replaced tint2's %H:%M with %R2. replaced conky's numeric output color “xxxxx” with “thistle4” (should I have just used its RGB numbers?)3. # out conky's short cuts (and the two spaces between the specs read-out & the shortcuts)4. deleted nitrogen's hard-coded path to the wallpaper folder (e.g. /n/n /n)Unless #! is allergic to jpeg wallpapers, or one of the recent updates is unstable, these would seem to be the only poss (HowTos)
