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?
