I don't think it's halted, I think it's cluttered by invalid syscalls. 
Secondly, any userland process can make the system unresponsive, by bad 
coding. Just write /tmp and /var/tmp full. It's not so hard.

I don't think that's the case here though. Any of you guys logging netstat -m 
output every 500ms? Maybe you can see mbufs being drained just before the 
system stops servicing syscalls.


Problem with today's modular software: they start with the modules
    and never get to the software part.
