here I hit swap on my iBook2.2, and GCC gives ICE segfault every 5 minutes in a
kernel compilation. And X does not last longer than one hour.
Seems to be some other races.
"This, btw, is not something I would suggest you do in your living room.
Getting a penguin to pee on demand is _messy_. We're talking yellow spots
on the walls, on the ceiling, yea verily even behind the fridge. However.
I would also advice against doing this outside - it may be a lot easier to
clean up, but you're likely to get reported and arrested for public
lewdness Never mind that you had a perfectly good explanation for it all."
