Second confirmation. Locks hard on doing a RShift-ScrlLock.

2.0.12 kernel - Pentium P133 16MB EDO Ram, Abit motherboard (Intel
82430HX) with 512kB pipeline burst cache. Can't think of any other
relevant details.

I haven't checked whether this occurs only in 2.0.12 - I'm afraid I did
rather a large upgrade (and didn't have cause to use RShift-ScrlLock
before either!)
