I wouldn't make the assumption that its not the kernel, seems like its 
the kernel for sure?  For instance:

sh: fork: Cannot allocate memory
sh: fork: Cannot allocate memory

This is not a good sign when you have free memory, but on the surface 
this does indeed to be a kernel problem... who you think decides there 
is no memory? :)
