Bug Description

In the 36.x series, I added some code that will prevent deja-dup-monitor's memory usage from growing out of bounds (see original bug 1302416 that I have still been unable to reproduce).

This causes crashes occasionally when the process is prevented from allocating more memory. This will be the master bug for such crashes and the dups will have the specific crash details.

The real fix for this bug is to fix original bug 1302416 a better way, by preventing the memory growth in the first place.

(Maybe we should silence reports of this kind of crash, so users aren't bugged by it in the meantime?)
