When submitting the original bugreport, I carefully read the bug submitting
guidelines and found the following:
a bug which has a major effect on the usability of a package, without
rendering it completely unusable to everyone.
Now I'm just wondering why an out-of-memory condition which turns my whole
system nearly unusable for about a minute, has a chance that other processes
get killed, and furthermore the particular buggy package fails to perform
the requested operation is not at least a "major effect on the usability"...
I'd be glad if someone could explain it to me... however, I'd be even more
glad if instead of playing games with the Severity field, someone simply
fixed this bug :-))
