This is PostgreSQL OOM-quiting, not Parabolaweb itself.  That doesn't
nescessarily mean anything, as it could be the case that something
else ate up all the memory, and Postgres was just the straw that broke
the camel's back.

I was seeing a lot of these when I was running heavy DB operations
during a migration last week, but we shouldn't see these now.  I even
wouldn't be surprised if this happened during a `get-repos` run, but
the timestamp is about 2 hours too early for that (`get-repos` runs at

I do think this indicates a memory leak somewhere, but I also think
that the box is a little memory-constrained.

Happy hacking,
