At least there's a HUGE red flag on tye. Load to the roof, RAM/swap
almost full, lots of dl10n-spider processes running for the same
language, some of them started May 9th.

Note that many de.po occurrences appear in the status file for other
languages, looks like processes heavily stomping onto others' feet?

It looks to me there should be some locking at the very least to avoid
that amount of concurrency. And that it would probably be best to start
afresh, killing all those processes, maybe disabling the cron jobs,
cleaning temporary and maybe corrupted data files, and triggering a
single run manually to see if it works.

But then, I have 0 knowledge about the spider, and I'll leave that up to
someone else: I don't want to risk making the matter worse!
