Second instance of an odd crash in my iMac (2008, C2D, 6GB RAM, ML)… - Echoes of Flavio's Ghost Dreaming

Second instance of an odd crash in my iMac (2008, C2D, 6GB RAM, ML) where the whole GUI freezes, including the clock but not the mouse pointer which still responds. Yeah, if you were going to suggest bad memory that's what I thought the first time (and with the other wake-from-sleep crashes that turned out to be a well documented something else) but I can ssh into the machine, can mount file shares from another mac and copy and move things around so I don't think it's bad memory as it is not a complete and 'proper' freeze. Any ideas?

Macs are a mystery to me. How much music have you got stored on it?

Anything useful in the system log?

Not that I could tell at the time. After a normal restart I started in single user mode and ran Applejack -this kept complaining about being 'unable to numerate USB device on port 1' but apart from that nothing unusual. Looking at the logs again cannot find anything unusual.
