sac2c causes sporadic freezes of display manager, for 10-30 seconds

sac2c -V sac2c v1.00-beta (Haggis And Apple) developer rev 18043:MODIFIED linux-gnu_x86_64 (Sat Jul 7 15:57:25 EDT 2012 by sac) This has been going on for several days, at least, perhaps weeks: The Ubuntu display manager periodically freezes when compiling sac programs. The mouse and keyboard go dead, and the taskbar clock freezes, showing the same time. Some time later, typically 15-25 seconds, things take off again. The clock's second hand jumps to the correct time. The failure is fairly frequent and does not seem to be correlated to any particular sac program. I note that the system monitor also freezes, so I am unable to tell what is going on with the CPUs and memory. I realize this isn't much help for fault isolation, but it is a major pain in the butt if I'm trying to do other tasks while running test suites.
