New 64-bit linux client crashes every 10-15 minutes when running a script on my Ubuntu 10.04 LTS machine:
~/Foldit$ ./Foldit
terminate called after throwing an instance of 'std::bad_alloc'
what(): std::bad_alloc
With the older 32-bit version this happens just once a day. Log.txt is attached.

I can confirm this bug. The linux client (I'm running Gentoo linux, I think it's independent of linux distribution) aborts frequently with these errors. It's impossible to run scripts that take longer than a few minutes, because of it.

Let me know if I can help in any way to solve this issue. I can easily reproduce the problem, so if you want me to provide more info or run a special test or debug version of the linux, just send me a message.

The latest version of the linux client will run longer, a few hours, before it crashes with the same error messages. I guess the reason is that recent versions of the client use less memory. The results of a crash can be quite disastrous; previous work on the puzzle you were working on might be lost, meaning you'll have to start over.
