Sometimes I have strange memory problems when using instruo to rebuild metadata caches for all my repositories (22 repositories for now).
Suddenly I have a lot of errors like following in my log file and my swap becomes full. Memory leak is here?

fork failed: Cannot allocate memory'
paludis at 1242181511: [WARNING e.ebuild.cache_failure] In thread ID '16261':

It's not related to any specific ebuild, as far as I can judge. I tried putting those ebuilds in overlay and regen cache and it works ok.

I have paludis 0.36.1 and bash 3.2.39(1)-release on Gentoo x86.
