The script(1) program loops and consumes all CPU after it reads EOF from
standard input.
Start an xterm.
In the xterm, become another user (actually, 'su - $USER' is sufficient)
Type 'script'.
Delete the xterm window.
Quick fix: back out rev 1.24 of src/usr.bin/script/script.c.
Better: find out why writing zero-length bytes to a pty controller does not
generate EOF on the pty slave. (This is what the commit message for 1.24
of script.c claims will happen.)
