[maemo-users] How to track deadlock ?

my N900 deadlocks roughly twice a weeks when under high usage, once per
month otherwise. It happens while the screen is off, I suspect that that
mail client is the culprit because I've seen the phone deadlock with
only the mail app running.
What happens is that I put it in my pocket, and when I want to use it
nothing happens. Even long presses on the power button do nothing. I
have to take off the battery, re-power it on and, of course, set the
time and date anew each time because automatic date setting doesn't work
(that's the part I hate the most).

Now I'd like to know what's the problem, and how to track this. Does
anyone have a solution ? Is there a special key combo, or something
though the USB port to be able to debug it when deadlocked ?
