I'm running openSUSE 11.1 with KDE 3.5 and conky 1.6.2. I find that after leaving conky to run for about 24 hours or so, I start having strange problems happen, like not being able to open new windows, or firefox behaving weirdly. Sorry I can't be precise.

Anybody else experienced weirdness like this?

Below is a sample of one of my conky config files:
