In addition to Mithrilhall's tip,try these:
If a window or app locks up and you can still use the mouse,open an xterminal and type xkill .This will allow you to kill the process by placing the mouse pointer over the x-out button of the window and left-clicking.
If you just get a blacked-out screen with the mouse pointer use this keyboard combination to stop and restart the x-server: Ctrl-Alt-Backspace
