[erlang-questions] centos 6.5 OOM kills heart process making restart impossible

When erlang process (erlang-17.3-2.el6 from Erlang Solutions packages)
eats too much memory under CentOS 6.5 it is killed by OOM killer which
But when I run it with -heart the heartbeat process gets killed first
because it's a child of beam.smp which has the largest OOM score. It
makes erlang application stop forever because both beam.smp and heart
I don't remember similar problems under R14-16 and Debian.
Is there any way to make sure that beam.smp is killed first to allow
heat process to restart it?
