	1) Gather large amounts of CPU time in interrupt mode, 2) runs low on memory, starts to swap,
3) crashes box due to lack of resources.

	Anything and everything.  Nothing in particular.

	Yes.  I have found that it does help.  I think this might do the trick.

	Can really tell if it is a specific OS & browser.
