:Also seeing this, but no crash. The system constantly uses at least 800MB
:swap. This system has 4gb RAM, but only 3.2 is usable because it runs
:32bit kernel. Im going to upgrade the system to 64bit after the release.

    If that much is constantly swapped out (and swapcache isn't being
    used) then the run-time footprint is larger then the 3G of ram the
    32bit kernel can use.
