Description of problem:
I managed to get Konqueror continiously feeding xmms song names some how which
caused a OOM state after a few minutes. While it was going the mouse pointer
moved and everything else was Extremely sluggish. Once it was over I got an
error message from the kernel about freeing memory. I am using a recompiled
2.4.18-7.93. I will attach the error raw and then processed through ksymoops.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Created attachment 69964 [details]
Raw error message

Error message after processed with ksymoops
Can you give a list of modules (and compiled in drivers) you are using?
I have one more such bugreport and sort of hope to find the guilty party by
finding what is common between them
At the time it was the binary only nvidia driver 2960(yeah yeah, heard the story
a thousand times from mharris) and VMware's vmnet and vmmon(again, know all
about tainted kernels being bad).
might well be vmware this one then..... they hook into stuff like this
