I just discovered this on one of our servers using 4.2. It started on
Monday morning and continued until I rebooted the server today.
I looked at the processes and quite a few were running for users that
were not logged in. The runaway processes were taking a lot of cpu time
(one was chess at 54% of the cpu time). I rebooted and the runaway
processes were gone. I found a script called maim that is supposed to
kill processes by the user who started them but no luck so far.
