Well.. it's really impossible to know how early it happened.. but I would guess
it happened about halfway through.

But I have no idea how you could be segfualting just because a malloc failed..
unless you just missed a check somewhere.. ;) I suppose it is possible I ran
out of ram for this user process.. I'll have to look at that possibility.. In
the meantime I'm running it again, to see if I can get the db problem to show
up again.

Sigh.. now it just cores out all the time..
