 Like long long long ago dead.  It was a failed task that ran out of heap.  Rather than just
kill it, I thought I would see what it was doing, since it was clearly using system resources.
 It would appear the system is trying to log but failing.  I'm guessing we're missing an error
condition and not doing the appropriate thing. See the comments for more.
