      Description

      Compiling with -j400 without icecream support is a recipe for disaster. It's an easy mistake to make, and it can happen due to either user misconfiguration or bugs in the ninja generator.

      On virtual workstations, SSH connections will time out, and the only resolution is to reset the host.

      It would be nice to add a prompt to say: "Are you sure you want to do this? You tried to compile with 400 jobs but your system only has 16 cores and icecream support isn't enabled. This will not end well".
