I kind of miss that behaviour (when things go wrong repeatedly). I wrote a C program that executes the command c:\windows\System32\taskkill.exe /im MathKernel.exe /t /f This runs in the background all the time, and responds to a hot key! The fact that I took time to set this up, probably reflects just how troublesome kernel hangs can be! Perhaps at the very least Mathematica could spawn a program of this type.
