Use of threaded apps such as mozilla eventually result in the system entering
a state where any process run does not terminate.
Run native mozilla for a few hours with a recent -current. Usually after the
second time mozilla crashes the entire system ends up in a state where
no process will terminate. For example you can run a new xterm but you can't
close the xterm, similarly you could type `ps` which will display your
processes but then hangs up.
