I wonder if a suitably well configured linux box has this problem. We *should* be able to have the system console itself be on the highest priority chains, and locked into memory.
Anyway, ulimit is your friend, use it. If your box is not supposed to reach loads like 1000 or so, then configure it accordingly to kill any task that attempts to do so.
