Probably related to gnome-keyring-sharp problems. Most users on Lucid will see a (random) crash from checking GMail but I suppose it is also possible it just goes into a busy state as well.

Same problem on lucid 64.
For me, the problem only shows up after logging in my system, when docky starts automatically.
The only way to block the docklet is to drag it out of docky and then add it back.

The next time this happens, please run the following:

  kill -SIGQUIT $(ps x|grep Docky.exe|grep -v grep|awk '{ print $1; }')

This should dump a stack trace to ~/.xsession-errors file, which I want you to attach here.

Note that if you start Docky from a terminal, the output will be in the terminal and not in that file.
