SubjectXFS strangeness, xfs_db out of memory

I was testing a tiny script on top of xfs_fsr to show fragmentation and the
resultss of defragmentation. As a result of fine tuning the output I ran the
script repeatedly and suddenly got error from find (unknown error 999 if my
memory serves me. It scrolled off the screen).

The logs show this.
Oct 24 08:06:50 xine kernel: hda: dma_timer_expiry: dma status == 0x21
Oct 24 08:07:00 xine kernel: hda: DMA timeout error
Oct 24 08:07:00 xine kernel: hda: dma timeout error: status=0xd0 { Busy }
Oct 24 08:07:00 xine kernel:
Oct 24 08:07:00 xine kernel: hda: DMA disabled
Oct 24 08:07:00 xine kernel: ide0: reset: success

How bad is that for XFS?... The error isn't permanent it seems.

After that xfs_db -r /dev-with-home -c "frag -v" gives me an out-of-memory
error after a while, consistently.

xfs_db: out of memory

The script essentially does this

xfs_info $dev
xfs_db -r $dev -c "frag -v"
find $mountp
xfs_fsr -v

Program versions
kernel is (Mandrake 10.1 Community edition)

xfs_repair had lots of comments after this, but went through.
