=> #1211  (fourteen Crescents)

The process is taking up only 134 Mb and the memory allocation it failed on is
small.  The machine has lots of RAM and swap as I mentionned, so it doesn't
make sense to me that we're really running out of memory.

The only other weirdness about our db is that we had a fork bomb problem
the other day and Pavel gave us some code to get rid of all forked tasks.
Could that have corrupted something?  I doubt it, but I thought I should
mention it.

We're also doing a lot of in-db parsing and using lots of regexps.


All help appreciated!
