Hm. MemoryError usually means that the process has run out of memory. Did/do your mixminion
processes tend to grow larger than your ulimit -m? That seems quite big!

Hmmm. That box is no more and rot26 is somewhere else now.

Let's assume for the moment that it did run into the ulimit
and close the bug. If the problem shows up again the bug
can always be reopened.
