Are you sure? I ran out of swap once or came damn close, due to a cron
job gone amuck. My clue was starting to see lots of memory allocation
errors. After I fixed what was blocking all the backed-up cron jobs, the
machine ground to a crawl (mmm... system load of 400+ on a dual
PII-375), and X did crash (though I think that's because I tried
switching to a different virtual console), but the machine stayed up and
eventually worked through everything.
