Package: fwanalog
Version: 0.6.1-1
Severity: normal
Tags: sid

A funny thing is happening since the last upgrade of fwanalog. The
daily cronjob creates hundreds of processes and exhausts all
available memory.

I tried going to /etc/cron.daily and running ./fwanalog, and
several processes were killed after a while (and the available
swap space dropped to zero). The number of processes (which is usually
something under 100) went to 500...

After a killall -9 fwanalog, things went back to normal:

            total       used       free     shared    buffers     cached
Mem:        256540      93268     163272          0      8620      22832
-/+ buffers/cache:      61816     194724
Swap:       594324      94664     499660

(But while fwanalog was running, I could check it and there was no
memory available).
