No.  I have not noticed any correlation with the time.  Sometimes I
have seen it run during the day and die as well.  I've seen it die
lots of times...  ;-)  It seems like it is always dying though
somewhere between 2 and 6 million records processed out of 28 mm
(which might support the theory of memory starvation of some kind if
it is holding some of those records in memory unintentionally, even
though top reports nothing more than 4GB out of 15GB being used).
