Unfreeze when moving between spaces

Happens to me frequently. I have many extras installed and have many applications open, including XQuartz (X11), so conflicts don't surprise me.

Haven't found the pattern yet, but I have found that putting the machine to sleep and waking it up a few seconds later clears the problem. Many ways to put it to sleep: use the mouse with the Apple menu, the appropriate physical button on your model Mac, or even an AppleScript tied to a button or click on a device. (Lately I've had one of the buttons on my Wacom Intuous3 tablet set to run an AppleScript application that contains simply tell application "System Events" to sleep
