I'm not.
Where would I see that this has occurred?
you wouldn't see it anywhere directly, you'll just experience an inability to communicate with the gpus. for example, oclHashcat has hung and won't quit, amdconfig hangs without displaying any input, etc.
At the risk of getting off topic, what causes ASIC hangs?
overclocking, overheating, hardware failure. a long-running kernel can also cause it as well, but you're not likely to have a problem like that with hashcat, and especially not with an algorithm like ntlm.
i'll keep an eye on it for now....
