Tint2 Edits Cause Freeze?

http://crunchbanglinux.org – I was bravely editing a few Tint2 configs (edit, restart, find info, edit...). I wanted tint2 to hide & show  (rapidly) upon mouse over (without bumping any open program down). At some point things became more adventurous: the system began to freeze occasionally (three or four times in the span of an hour). Upon reflection, I believe the problems began after I edited the auto hide - before I even touched strut policy (perhaps someone could clarify what strut policy does?). Would it be possible for those two to conflict? Is it possible I have the hide/show speed set w/an unacceptable n (HowTos)
