Thanks for both this article and compcache of course!
It (and vm_deadlock patches by Peter Zijlstra) saved me and colleagues quite a lot of frustration while eatin' our own dog food, that is working on thin clients with 64M RAM.
Hope #ltsp folks did get around to integration on TCs (the article mentions installer but the culprit with school terminal networks is usually the client not the server), at least we did "sell" both patches to them back then. :)
So thanks again, it was nice to communicate with you and it is nice to read up on current developments either.
