Do you know how much memory was in use by swish-e at the time of the
error? If I recall correctly, by default FreeBSD limits processes to
512MB (MAXDSIZ). That's adjustable up to a point, of course.
But if your OS and CPU are not both 64-bit (and swish-e also isn't
64-bit) there's probably a hard limit of 2 GB per process.
