Several times recently, I've experienced system crashes from
openoffice. (This is a compiled via pkgsrc version, not a linux
binary.) Most of the crashes have been at times of memory contention;
at least one was not. I haven't been able to get into ddb because I'm
(of course) in X at the time.
I'm running a kernel from May 17 or thereabouts, using xorg.
Has anyone else seen anything like this?
