SubjectBehavior under swap catastrophe?
I've noticed lately that the behavior of the kernel when some process goes
berserk and fills up all the swap is a little strange. It seems to start sending
SEGV's to many processes as the large one grows. This wouldn't be so bad, except
that init is often killed. Is a modification to protect the life of init in order?
Or should we just make sure this never happens?

Comments or flames welcome.
