@lain that's firefox's "fork() failed" error message. they have neither a real crash handler nor a real update notification

@flussence @lain Nor good code… wtf are they doing to screw fork() this way. (no I don't want to actually know…)

@lanodan @lain it's really easy to provoke it, just turn overcommit off. after a while you won't be able to use new tabs

@flussence @lain Well I don't have firefox (doesn't compile with a horribly unreadable pile of Rust and C++ errors) but overcommit being off here works fine as long as GLib stays the hell away with it's abort() on g_malloc failures.
