i wouldn't have guessed this from martin's email that was explicitly 
talking about pd0.37+pdp+pmpd+pidip (i guess (at least: i hope) he would 
have mentioned Gem if it were in the list)

this is true.
as far asi have tracked it down, it is really (honestly ;-)) related to 
QuickTime (and probably the combination QuickTime+openGL ??)
i haven't tried pdp/pidip, but i guess it works ok here.
anyhow, my reference is the "lqtplay"-application that is coming with 
the quicktime-utilities (so I haven't written a single line of this 
code) and it religiously (as chris would say) freezes with 
kernel-2.6(.3) - exactly like Gem.

anyhow, these crashes are normally rather lightweight, as you could just 
kill pd and restart. (no keyboard freeze)
