Could you give more details on the system itself? Hard-drive size and
available disk and/or volume space? CPU? Memory? Swap file/partition
size? Can you show the header of the database file? What is the
dialect of the database? Is it possible that it is a disk space issue,
since the problem is always around the same db file size? And, what is
the file system used?
