I am facing a slightly weird issue. GUI's of eclipse, emacs or vim do not work on my comp. Please see the processor usage at the top in http://www.cse.iitb.ac.in/~namitk/eclipse.png, http://www.cse.iitb.ac.in/emacs.png (Also see vim.png at the same url). When I run these programs, the processor usage shoots up but the program GUI fails to load completely (for e.g in emacs/vim - the cursor never appears). I have tried waiting for 10-15 mins just in the hope - but nothing loads. I think its a GUI issue because the non-gui versions (emacs -nw and vi/vim) work normally without any issues. Has anyone faced such an issue previously? Could someone please suggest a way of debugging this issue?
My configuration is (output of uname -a) Linux namit-ThinkPad-T61 3.0.0-12-generic #20-Ubuntu SMP Fri Oct 7 14:50:42 UTC 2011 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux.
Please let me know if any other info is needed.
