I'm having similar freezes. I noticed they usually happen when resuming from
suspend. How are you running your xrandr config? I think it is being caused by
xrandr, but I was not able to pinpoint it exactly. I'm using autorandr here.

I have to kill all users processes, restart the systemd user instance process,
and login again.
