hmm - still weird and I would not actually consider impala a resource
starved box (especially when compared to other buildfarm-members) so
there seems to be something strange going on.
I have changed the overcommit settings on that box for now - let's see
what the result of that will be.

or some even less - dove seems to be one of the affected boxes too - I
increased the build frequency since yesterday but it has not yet failed
