I got a message "process table is full" when trying to create a new
process (ie. trying to run a command in the shell).

Hmm. I _think_ the MAXUSERS is set properly, after all - I checked my
kernel using binpatch (symbol _maxproc). But _why_ did I get the message
of process table being full when the table had 788 entries and I had only
100...150 processes? :-I
