[techtalk] tty lockup

I was running red-carpet and it ate up ALL my available ram. I killed
it. Now I can get no responsiveness at the console. I am logged in
from another machine right now so I can send this mail.
I suspect that the oom condition caused Linux to kill (somewhat)
random processes, and one of them was my tty (mgetty?) Am I on track
or way off base?
Any tips on how to fix this?
