I'd say it should kill the offending process. 

Or if info about the offender isn't available, just kill all who request more 
of the resource, until it has enough free resources again :) 

That's a bit not-nice for applications, but it will likely get the offender 
quite early, because that oen will most often request new resources. 

Best wishes,
