    The fork bomb -> main(){fork();main();} maybe doesn't crash a system but
    it makes it totally unresponsive which seems like one and the same thing
    to me. On a solaris box such a fork bomb doesnt even bring the system load
    up to more than 0.03 on a p133. I limit the number of per user processes
    to 128 there. I'm very much interested in that patch so if you could post
    the url here or maybe even the patch itself you'd make me a happy man :)
