:Strange, as I have 3GB of memory. Is there a memory leak somewhere?

I thought I had fixed those. Damn.
Can you get a crash dump from the panic? And upload it to your
Hm, I couldn't reproduce the panic after setting "dumpdev" correctly in
loader.conf (it refered to a non existing partition). I also used
hw.physmem="2G" (instead of the 3G of memory).
I try again without the hw.physmem setting and see if I can reproduce
it. Or could it be related to maybe dumpdev (or the missing swap partition)?
This does sound like a memory leak but it could also be something
else. HAMMER keeps track of all those allocations so I should be
able to figure out what is going on from a crash dump.
