Thank you for reporting and your patience. It seems something strange
that your KDE programs are killed. I agree.

I attached a scirpt for checking oom_score of all exisiting process.
(oom_score is a value used for selecting "bad" processs.")
please run if you have time.

This is a result of my own desktop(on virtual machine.)
In this environ (Total memory is 1.6GBytes), mmap(1G) program is running. | sort -n | tail
89924	3938	mixer_applet2
90210	3942	tomboy
94753	3936	clock-applet
101994	3919	pulseaudio
113525	4028	gnome-terminal
127340	1	init
128177	3871	nautilus
151003	11515	bash
256944	11653	mmap
425561	3829	gnome-session
Sigh, gnome-session has twice value of mmap(1G).
Of course, gnome-session only uses 6M bytes of anon.
I wonder this is because gnome-session has many children..but need to
dig more. Does anyone has idea ?
