Ilya mentioned something about 7 GB of memory, so we can scratch the
32 bit theory.

On i386, processes receive SIGXFSZ by default if writing to a file
would push it past the 2 GB barrier.  This used to happen with some
syslog implementations.  But it's probably unrelated given that Ilya
is not on a 32-bit system.
