Sounds like run away memory allocation problem. Linux is quite
optimistic about memory, so it usually never returns a malloc failure,
but instead happily thrashes all your processes to disk (especially for
priority tasks). Eventually processes that are hogging too much memory
just get killed by the Linux kernel, but I'm not sure if thats the case
with SCHED_FIFO or other high priority processes.
