SAK kills all
 
In Slackware 14 (and also earlier versions of course) the secure attention key (sak) kills too many processes. Is there any plan to repair it?

According to Andrew Morton in /usr/src/linux/Documentation/SAK.txt:
Code:

2: On the PC keyboard, SAK kills all applications which have
  /dev/console opened.

  Unfortunately this includes a number of things which you don't
  actually want killed.  This is because these applications are
  incorrectly holding /dev/console open.  Be sure to complain to your
  Linux distributor about this!

  You can identify processes which will be killed by SAK with the
  command

    # ls -l /proc/[0-9]*/fd/* | grep console

Yes I did and am and probably will.

When I look at my system, the only proceses that would be killed by SAK would be gpm and console-kit-daemon. Is that really too many processes?

Sorry I forgot to mark process with red color so that it could not get confused with program.
