1.11 has a number of memory leaks fixed which might help, but it really
looks like you need more virtual memory (i.e., swap space). If I'm
reading things correctly, you've got 130MB files in the repository that
you're trying to work with and only 260MB of swap for the entire system!
Disk space is cheap these days; you need to get some more.
I don't NEED to compromise my principles, because they don't have
the slightest bearing on what happens to me anyway. -- Calvin
