Brilliant problem. I got this very early on with 6.11 ... on my Toshiba Satellite 2130cs. I never heard of anyone else getting this before. It went away when I did a number of things, any one of which may have fixed the problem --

defrag the hard drive set permanent swapper to 55mg set files to 60 in config.sys run memmaker remove my IBM Internet Connection for Windows (went back after memmaker and ok)

I don't recall if I tracked this, but if I did no reply was forthcoming. I did these things after it happened, but I don't remember what I was doing at the time to cause the problems. I remember showing the screen to people at work and having to do an off/on to stop SAS.
