Created an attachment (id=780)

top screenshot at time of deadlock

Normal, (but idle and off hours) state of top info looks like this:
top - 21:30:57 up  4:58, 72 users,  load average: 0.00, 0.02, 0.00
Tasks: 674 total,   2 running, 672 sleeping,   0 stopped,   0 zombie
Cpu(s):  0.7% us,  0.1% sy,  0.0% ni, 99.2% id,  0.0% wa,  0.0% hi,  0.1% si
Mem:  10486784k total, 10419320k used,    67464k free,    75468k buffers
Swap:  2032212k total,      144k used,  2032068k free,  8451356k cached

Maybe noteworthy is though cached is normally at 80-90% of Mem, at deadlock
point it's nearly down to 50%.
