I was running the following:

cd /usr/src/linux
while true
do
make mrproper
zcat /proc/config.gz >.config
make -j6
done

plus a little homegrown memory-exerciser that really just exercises

What happens with swap? Is it used when thing crashes?
Memtest doesn't use swap, it keeps CPU busy, but it never crashes.
