running 8.10 and gnome on 2 machines, same issue on both (1 32bit with ATI graphics, 1 64bit with Intel graphics)

Recently (2 weeks?) I started to get locked where I can not click on any windows, dialog or buttons. The mouse still moves and I can ctrl + alt f# to get to a text console and I can ctrl + alt + bcksp to restart xorg. After restart all works again.

Found some apps seem to cause this more frequently than others such as Evolution and terminal server client.

Anyone else seeing similar issues? Any fixes / workarounds?
