I think you grant me more sophistication than I can aspire to here: no I have 
never looked into replacing a running kernel -- I was referring to having 
performed an automated minor kernel upgrade (via apt) but encountering 
problems possibly due to not rebooting (despite warnings!).

I am rather interested in whether it is possible to somehow overload a running 
kernel though!
