It seems like the kernel OOM killer picks up ser as its victim.
However ser never use more memory then ~ 1Mb + the size given to -m (or
32MB if -m is not used). So either you use too much shared memory (-m
size is to big) or there is some other application eating a lot of
memory and the kernel OOM picks ser for some obscure reason.
