      Description

      On SUSE11, there is a default virtual memory limit. For example,

      ip-10-184-155-113:~ # ulimit -a
      ....
      virtual memory          (kbytes, -v) 6314640
      ....

      When trying to create a capped collection that will push virtual memory over the limit, the mongod process crashes with the following:
