I've configured my machine with a very large tmpfs:

ac131313@nettle$ df -k /tmp
Filesystem  1K-blocks     Used    Avail Capacity  Mounted on
mfs:123        989776       35   940252     0%    /tmp

I've twice on recent occasions found that my machine hung when unpacking 
a number of large (~100mb) tar balls into this tmpfs.

The machine is a G4 Ti with 256mb of ram running a very new kernel.

Has anyone else noticed this?
