    I'm perfectly aware of that! This test was more or less a
    cross-check. I'm more concerned that crashme running under
    an unprivileged UID could lock the machine!
    But as I don't have any more data points (no oops, no syslog
    entry) right now I can't say what went wrong exactly.

    I would be interested in other reports of crashme tests
    for Linux-2.0.34prexy. Anyone having better experiences?
