From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (30 December 2018) :

  all-elbows
  
      Said of a TSR (terminate-and-stay-resident)
     mess-dos program, such as the N pop-up calendar and
     calculator utilities that circulate on BBS systems:
     unsociable.  Used to describe a program that rudely steals
     the resources that it needs without considering that other
     TSRs may also be resident.  One particularly common form of
     rudeness is lock-up due to programs fighting over the keyboard
     interrupt.
