Out of memory: kill process 7559 (rsync) score 635 or a child
Killed process 7559 (rsync)

I was surprised to see this in my dmesg whenmy rsync backup suddenly stalled/stopped.

This system has 3 gigs of RAM and lots of free memory so I don't understand what is happening.

rsync invoked oom-killer: gfp_mask=0x200d2, order=0, oomkilladj=0
