No. I'm saying it's only happened once since I installed C7, not long
after it was released. While I haven't kept records of dates and times,
I don't think it was at any specific time.
I saw it 2 or 3 times previously, probably some Fedora version,... my
tired old brain won't divulge that info right now.
It seems reasonable that it's some kind of hardware issue but I don't
see anything in the logs I've thought to check.
I inquired, hoping some of you could suggest other places to look for
info, in retrospect.
