I have a question:

I just installed ChrUbuntu (Chromebook Ubuntu, running 12.04 LTS) and from time to time it just freezes up and gets extremely unresponsive. i only have Chrome open during that time. the only way to fix it is to force a logout of the user and log back in. somehow i don't believe 'Linux' and 'Out of Memory' belong in the same sentence. nothing bad appears to run when i do a 'top' in a terminal. does Ubuntu not play well with SSDs?

Seems i can reproduce the freeze. the magic number is having four or more tabs open in chrome. but why does it happen?
