You beat me to it morgon :-D

When a sysadmin on Solaris, my favourite emacs hack was to remove the damn thing - one of 2 scenarios kept recurring (both directly traceable to emacs):

  • filling /tmp ... causing kernel panic.
  • process table filling up - preventing any other operation - self-evidently a hard reset was always required as the fix

A user level that continues to overstate my experience :-))
