When we are running 64 processes,
we are using ~ 250 Mb from 1 GB RAM.

+If this is an OOM problem, here is why it is happening: the gc does
+not know about the memory you allocate using malloc. So, it doesn't
+realize `hey, I need to do a gc to free unmanaged memory'. Relying on
+the GC to free unmanaged memory with finalizers is *not* a good idea.
+You really need to call Dispose. OOM only comes from gc allocations,
+not from standard malloc.
+Does your rsh have some sort of ulimit attached? Does the problem go
+away if you call Dipsose?
+Can you try a similar test case that just malloc's a similar amount
+of memory to what you are doing?
