Two easy ways to crash a NetBSD system - is it only my system or...?

1. main(void) { while(1) fork(); }

2. use dd to copy data from a raw disk partition to /dev/null and set
   the block size to a big value (like 8 megs).

I'm not trying to start a war - I just don't feel comfortable with the
possibility that _any_ user can crash the system with a 1-line C program.

I'm running a 960210 kernel, if that matters.
