Description Carlos Romero 2004-10-29 15:32:06 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.3)
Gecko/20041023 Epiphany/1.4.4

Description of problem:
oom-handler kills dozens of processes at a time.
im used to having kernel oom reap a single pid and be happy with it,
but since 2.6.9-rc series i've been having the reaper tear through
some benign processes including daemons.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.gnome desktop running on 128M/256swap
2.rpmbuild eg kernel,glibc in gnome-terminal
3.browse using epiphany until the kernel oom-handler is called

Expected Results:  kill a single memory hog like epiphany and be done
