OO either to completion. Code is strange, she is big, she is wild like the

but after that, the next visit shows 2 java_vm processes consuming all my CPU,
and I have to kill phoenix.

other reports talk about 'locking up' but it looks to me like a runaway process
more than a lockup problem. -Top shows a phenomenal number of java_vm instances,

interesting except -9 which kills phoenix-linux too.

Is this a linux emulation issue?

Anybody have any suggestions on other frobs?
