Not sure, but the context in which emacs died did not point at it
hitting a limit. I only had open an almost empty file and had been
browsing the help - not exactly pushing the envelope and certainly
nowhere near what I normally do in emacs.
BTW for all the people who were suggesting it may be a getty
interfering with X (a valid point!). I don't think so in my case, I
am running the PCVT console with 4 consoles active, the X session
appears to be occupying the 5th screen. Besides, why would that only
affect XDM? I have only experienced these oddities using xdm - I use
X almost daily and have not had problems until using xdm..... very
odd. I am considering compiling X myself just in case it is a library
