    After trying every kernel in 2.2 family and 2.4.0-test2-ac2 which all
    show the same symptoms (pausing, running processes work, but can not
    start new ones) I finally gave myself in and downgraded the server
    to 2.0.39pre5 which works flawlessly.

    I don't know what exactly my setup does to VM (running sendmail, cyrus
    pop3d and imapd with ldap) but it looks like that the same problem
    continues also
    in 2.4.0. If somebody wants more info please contact me. I can also
    with testing fixes but kernel hacking is beyond me.
