I read this thread and linux does indead have this problem.
I also read the FreeBSD sourcecode, and saw a (somewhat)
elegant solution for this. If FreeBSD is out of memory, it
looks through the processes and kills off the largest one.
This should be doable in Linux too...

The problem stated in this thread, that Linux dies with
'cannot load interpreter' has never happened to me though...
