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....
