Hmm, retrying after reboot and killing processes I still get the error,
but the mem looks quite free:

             total       used       free     shared    buffers    cached
Mem:        254032      40632     213400          0       2088     20848
-/+ buffers/cache:      17696     236336
Swap:       265848          0     265848

so it seems to be something different?

stracing gives me not much, here the problematic case:

mmap(NULL, 794624, PROT_READ|PROT_WRITE, MAP_PRIVATE|MAP_ANONYMOUS, -1, 0) = 0x2000024a000
mmap(0x4000000000000, 106496, PROT_READ|PROT_WRITE, MAP_PRIVATE|MAP_FIXED|MAP_ANONYMOUS, -1, 0) = -1 ENOMEM (Cannot allocate memory)

but I don't understand it.

ltrace is not available on debian/sarge, grumpf.

Does the above ring a bell with you?

Best wishes
