I don't understand what you mean "on the way out" but I don't think the 
problem is lack of memory because I have 384MB in my machine.

But could my slicing have something to do with this thing. I have three 
HDDs in the machine a 3GB, 4GB and 6GB divided like this.

/tmp 256MB
/var 1024MB
/ 714MB
/swap 1024MB

/usr 4140MB

/home 6356MB
