[Gnu-arch-users] [BUG] Bazaar-1.3, unable to fork for diff

Version 1.2 was fine with this but since 1.3, baz cannot successfully
call fork() on a big tree like the Linux kernel. The fork() call
(actually the clone() system call) fails with ENOMEM. The file-diff
command is fine. tla-1.3 works fine (haven't tried 1.3.1).

Just a guess - any unclosed file descriptors or other resources

The memory usage goes slowly up to about 79MB (and suddenly, just
before failing, it jumps to around 158MB but this is caused by the
fork() call).
