drush and the server fork bomb

drush (the drupal shell) is a nice command line tool that I have installed on the server for the wuug drupal project. It has the nice ability to be able to work through a remote instance via ssh --- or so the documentation says --- in my case it fork bombed the server --- the OOM killer played havoc with my server and still failed to slow down the fork bomb. What a mess.
