I don't know if anyone had some thoughts about this, but it seems to important point to ME. It is not really a bug, but a weak point in XOOPS. I think it could be quite easy to bring down MySQL because of the database size (my amateur view!).
If you want to harm any XOOPS site just add notification for everything (news, forum etc.). This will take some time of course, but makes the database bigger and bigger.
Notifications should be limited in core. Especially important for the zombies that will never visit the site again, but have their notifications running. In my time as owner of myxoops.org I had to clear PMs from time to time, because of the notifications.
