I don't have the open/close dialog problem, but I'm getting X weirdness
with the new Beta (625 and 648). Houdini will lock up the screen, X will
peg at 100%, but I still have mouse movement and keyboard
It seems to crash/lock when I'm running an OpenGL app at the same time
(no verification there). Only looking at a large polygon model in the
viewer, no mplay window.
I'm running RHEL4, KDE, Quadro FX1300, latest NVIDIA drivers.
