LBreakout freezes in Ubuntu 8.04

    I love this game--but unfortunately it's basically unplayable for me at this point due to a possible bug that causes the game to freeze when, to put it simply, too much is going on graphically.  This usually happens when I get an explosive ball or two going, and once several bricks start exploding, the display freezes.  The game seems to keep running, however, until I hear the inevitable 'damn!', and then it's playable again.

    Does anyone have any idea what's going on and/or how I can fix it?  I play 3D FPS games on this laptop all the time, so I don't think it's a hardware issue.  Any help would be appreciated. 

    Thanks!

    • In the options set the option to limit the FPS to 100. That fixed it for me.
