Actually, one thing I might believe is that when one process trips a
page fault and has to be swapped back in, all other processes freeze,
waiting on the memory manager. But I'd want to see some evidence that
that's the case. It's plausible (based on some of the problems I've
seen) but by no means necessarily true.
