Leaving one core free won't help you at all. Even with all cores
exhausted you can still launch additional applications or tools.
You'll get 50% of one core only, but that's plenty to find and
kill a runaway process.
If you ever experience a totally locked system, this is clearly a bug
of the OS. Ah, and please don't confuse a locked display process with
a locked operating system.
 Here I've simplified real behaviour a bit.
