Hmm - well, unless I'm mistaken as to the type of crash you're getting, msec 
shouldn't be *able* to make your machine go boom. The worst a rogue process 
can do is kill other processes and overwrite files - it should *not* be able 
to take out your machine entirely. Ooh, well, I suppose it could dump a lot 
of junk into /dev/mem, that would probably work. Doesn't sound that likely,
