First results -I couldn't reproduce a kernel panic anymore but
processes don't seem to wake up after getting paged in again.
Symptoms: I started a couple of fairly memory-hungry, multithreaded X11
apps, then started a compile job in an xterm ( kde stuff - makes the
c++ compiler eat copious amounts of memory ). Left the whole thing
alone for a while and then tried to bring a window of one of the big
X11 apps to front ( mysqlcc in this case ) - lots of paging activity
and then nothing. The process seems to hang, at least the window
content doesn't get redrawn. Another app ( gcvs ) got a bus error and
dumped core instead but I'm not sure that's really related.
Trying to kill the hung process led to ~100% CPU usage, all kernel
time, from mysqlcc.
So, whatever you're doing - you seem to be on the right way :)
