I have had Impress apbruptly terminate because the terminal's X server
exhausted all memory. It would load and start to run Impress, but after
the first couple of slides while running "slideshow" it would die. This
was with a DevonIT 8020P terminal with 128MB RAM. Turning on NBD swap
solved the problem.
