Currently it is possible for apps to become totally unresponsive and NOT get the "Application is not responding" dialog. Unresponsive apps also can't be killed from the main screen until they respond (the cover disappears from view but is still there and clickable).

The only way to kill such apps is to ssh in or use the terminal. This requires:

  1. developer mode to be enabled
  2. ssh access OR fingerterm to be usable (you are screwed when without ssh and fingerterm does not respond)

Even having htop instead of the default top would be nice

I noticed, that there is an app called Crest available via Warehouse (System category). It shows "top" information. And htop is also available from Warehouse.

Crest was updated to support killing (at least for applications running under the same user). Testing/sugestions/patches are welcome :-) Trying to get it into official repo.

And it is available in Harbour as well since some time :-)
