^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

If you were, you'd have written something that makes sense.

1. my OOM killer *always* spits out a message when it kills
something
2. you haven't written what kernel version you're using;
judging from your lack of error messages you're running
2.2 (which has the nasty habit of killing processes under
heavy load ... I have a patch out which fixes that)

regards,

Rik
