    No. I'll try setting some limits. However I don't think that this
    happened until I upgraded to RedHat 6.0 (about a week before 6.1 was
    released), and enlightenment was installed. I'll try going back to fvwm2
    for a bit. I was running 2.2 before that, so its not a kernel upgrade
    that caused it.

    The extra memory requirements of E is was made me think of an OOM
    situation. If Netscape tries to grab excessive amounts of memory, and
    we're low on memory, shouldn't it be killed?

    Thanks,


    Bradley
