We never got to the bottom of that (I think).  It wasn't clear
whether it was a hardware problem or not.

But yes, 0.0.8 will do bad things if the system seriously
runs out of memory.  The current development tree works
around out-of-memory problems in a brute-force manner (ie: 
it simply retries) and that appears to work very much better.

We still have problems with memory shortage in data=journal
when doing nutty things to machines with 64 megs of memory;
I'd recommend you stick with the default mode, data=ordered.
