Seems that after Sony released their V1.5 firmware upgrade to fix the scaling issue with PS2 games, a large number of complaints have been seen in the Sony PS3 forum, AVS forum and others according to various media outlets.  Seems the firmware upgrade has been identified by PS3 owners (of course Sony is mum on the issue) as causing momentary freezes during Blu-ray movie playback and some games.  the common use when the freezing occurs is using the wireless controller for navigating the BD and users having a wireless connection to the internet.
