    The old KISS principle...Having a locked system and the admin 2 hours away
    could be a definite problem....If you kill all users tasks(have init go
    down to single user and back to multiuser, you at least have a chance of
    the system stablizing itself. Sure a few connections get dropped to
    various daemons, but isn't this a bit better than no connections until
    whoever realizes the reset button needs pressed....
