Not me, have not had such an issue. make sure you are completely yum-updated for 
a start.

I guess the reason why no one has replied to your post so far is that its hard 
to work out or even think about such issues without some more context. Do you 
have proprietary drivers installed for anything ? ndiswrapper for wifi  ? grfx 
drivers for nvidia or ati ? Could there be a network issue ?
