Out of memory when upgrading package
I upgraded several potato packages today and when apt-get was trying to
install xcontrib it gave an out of memory error. The load was quite
high, sometimes over 2.0 and most of my 64 MB of RAM and all my 130 MB
of swap was in use. Needless to say, the system was extremely sluggish
and several attempts to do anything resulted in segfaults.
I was able to kill the processes with ctrl-c (it appears to have been in
the post-removal script for the previous version at this point).
apt-get clean doesn't report any problems and dpkg still reports the
previous version is installed. Is there anything I should do at this
