This mechanism appears to be very naive, and is easily bypassed.
For example: it is easy to develop a “creeping” fork-bomb that will just wait 30s (or even 1m, or 5m) between spawning successive generations of children. When this bomb begins to make its impact, it will already have tens (or hundreds, or thousands) of children, and the history will be long gone.
