Public bug reported:


I'm using Intrepid 64 bit. My system freezes randomly, I identified
boinc-client (6.2.12-1) or/and boinc-manager (6.2.12-1) to cause this

What happens:
Very often the load increased very fast and music/ vidoes stops playing (it doesn't matter which program plays the music/video). Sometimes the load decreases and after some minutes the music/video starts going on, but someteimes the system freezes. It also happens that the system freezes without any increase of the load, but I noticed that the music/video only stops playing, if the load increases. 
If I recognize that the load increases fast I stop the calculation via the boinc-manager and the load decreases 	immediately and music/video is going on immediately too.

The system hangs often for some seconds too (mostly with no increas of the load) and goes on as normal. The length is not longer then some seconds (mostly 1 or 2 seconds).
I thought the freeze could be a long hang, but I can wait for minutes and the system is still freezed.

I observed, that the project Poem at home causes more freezes than Climateprediction at home, but I don't know why.

I am able to provide more information, if needed.
