Ok, I just run

od /bin/mixxx in eshell.

( mixxx is 11.6 MB binary and od /bin/mixxx | wc -l gave me ~750000 lines )

Emacs freezes when the buffer is at ~6500 lines,
the whole daemon stoped so I had to restart it to write this email.
MPD started glitching the music that was on, and firefox crashed.
Also my network manager restarted at that point.

I managed to open a terminal and type pkill emacs, and everything went back
to normal.

Is it possible that memory depletion is causing this? I got 8gb...

P.S. when I run the same command in urxvt it just prints out the octals
for a while without a single hint of lag anywhere on the pc.
