SubjectRe: crashme crashes 2.0.20 with guarantee :-(

I have dowloaded crashme at 10 bytes / second.
Fortunately my system did not crash during the transfer. :)
For the moment, crashme has been ran about 30 times with the suggested
parameters and the suggested "ulimit". No crash, at least for my system.

Boris: is there something more hard than I can try?

Now I will try to run intense disk activity while crashme is trying to crash.
