Hi Helge,

the only way you can troubleshoot memory problems is by compiling the 
memory debug support (remove the F_MALLOC and add DBG_QM_MALLOC flag).
you will get a lot of info about memory processing - like how much 
memory is required via each malloc, what's the allocated pool, etc.

recompile with mem dbg support and restart the proxy; wait for the 
errors to appear again. The error seams to be triggered by the private 
(pkg) memory.

it may be a memory leak or a bogus malloc call. Once the error appeared 
in the logs, use SIG_USR1 to force the guilty process to dump statistics 
about pkg memory (to see if mem leak).
