I think a similar thing happens on OSX using -rt as well.  The GUI 
locks up when the CPU loads gets high although GEM continues to render 
to the window.  I've always thought it had to do with GEM monopolizing 
the video hardware and not giving other processes a chance to draw, and 
do other UI events.  The problem seemed to stem from OSX's GUI being an 
OpenGL process itself, but looks like that might not be the case.
