The main issue is that something wrong is going on with buildbot. From
time to time, it eats gigabytes of RAM (last time, 64GB) and kills the
machine. maybe once per week. This is not very welcomed by my host and
his reaction is to shutdown the solaris "zone" because we don't "behave"
and this is impacting production system.

I am trying to convince him to launch buildbot process tree with an
"ulimit" to protect the machine. Lets see.

Sorry. Thanks for your patience.
