low on memory. Restart scheduled.

Users.cs is running low on memory, mostly because of large number of students own java processes. This made the server to respond slowly or not at all during the weekend. We shall make more memory available, and later when we have new virtual host hardware installed and in use, we shall make much more memory available. However, this requires a server restart, which has now been scheduled for thursday. This has the added benefit of cleaning out unused java server processes.

Users.cs also now has memory and process number limits installed for user processes, which should protect the server from accidentally running out of memory (yes, this applies to those emacs processes which randomly go crazy).

Please, remember to shut down your server processes which are not in use.
