I don't see how (assuming `breaking the bank' to equate to a DoS attack or something like that). If a process demands heaps of time in the future and doesn't use it, it'll sacrifice all its current time and end up with nothing (i.e. an idling system or other processes using the time instead). If it demands heaps of time and other things do as well, then it won't get that much time. No problem in either case.
