+ <teythoon> unzipping stuff in the exec server enables a dos on filesystem

+ <braunr> teythoon: ?
+ <braunr> teythoon: what's the dos here ?
+ <teythoon> I can prevent you from doing anything with the root filesystem
+ <teythoon> I'm kind of surprised myself, maybe a lock is held during the

+ <braunr> teythoon: i don't understand
+ <braunr> have you tried starting something from another file system ?
+ <braunr> the lock may simply be in the exec server itself
+ <teythoon> no, starting other things works fine
+ <teythoon> but on the other hand, a find / is stalled
