# Oh! The kernel didn't panic? Do you have "DEBUG" enabled in your kernel?

Sorry.. should have been more specific. A question though.. I'm assuming this
happens when make or cc hits a ulimit. (it happens alot more on smaller memory
machines) Why dont we have something like SIGXCPU called SIGXMEM, and kill it
with one of those? The problem is, I have a paralell version of our standard
make (which runs on my glunix-netbsd cluster) and it likes to exceed memory on
the smaller machines, and bomb out with sigsegv's. Its very hard to debug,
because I can't tell if I've just hit a ulimit, or if I've actually made a call
to protected memory.
