I've investigated this run-away problem deeper and now have a small
shell script which monitors the proc 'events/0' in the way that all 600
seconds the CPU time consumed in the last 600 seconds is compared against 2
(normally it is 0 or 1 sec, but if 'events/0' it is a big jump to some

the script can be found in http://www.unixarea.de/monEvents.sh and if
the situation occurs the script monEvents.sh calls a Python script
'/home/root/sys/shuttdown.py', can be found in http://www.unixarea.de/shuttdown.py
which offers the user the option to re-boot (which is better than
running out of battery, I think);

ofc, this is only a hack and OM should fix that 'events/0' issue asap;
