 The problem continues to appear to be a filesystem-related issue
 as I can do compute-bound jobs with no problem. Physical memory is
 recovered as it normally does with no issue. Large or intensive
 filesystem writes appear to cause the system to seize and it doesn't
 even appear to require physical memory to be exhausted as it just
 seized twice with vmstat showing over 2G of available physical
 memory, and physical memory isn't showing to be recovered after
 intensive fs writes when I stop it before the system seizes.
 Have any filesystem-related changes been done recently?
