No. Which architecture, which compiler, ...?
You could try to build a kernel with debugger and try to enter
if when it happens. Is the machine on a network? If so, does it
respond to a ping? If so, can you try to login? If so, which 
processes are running? Did you try it with a different X server?
It might be that only the X server is frozen? ...? ...? :-)
