Sadly, yes. And no idea how to track it down.
Very annoying and no idea how to diagnose the issue.
I'm yet to install F22, but just as an idea --- can you arrange to see
what is the output of top and iotop during the pause (if any)?
That's just to eliminate any cpu and hd hangs due to some buffer
flushings or such...
Also, some other shot-in-the-dark ideas: is it just certain apps that
get stuck, like konsole? What if you open konsole and xterm side by
side, and start ping in both --- do they both get stuck? Does konsole
suffer when running under XFCE? Did you disable/enable desktop effects
Experimenting in this way can at least help localize the problem to a
certain set of apps or something, I guess...
I'm delaying the installation of F22 precisely due to these kind of
quirks, it seems that there are a bit too many of them in the new KDE.
