One of my servers (still running openSUSE 11.4, but I've also recompiled latest
open-vm-tools from 12.2) can't run vmtoolsd.
After ~1 minute it crashes with the following message:

[ error] [vmsvc] MEM_ALLOC guestInfoPosix.c:292

I've found a hint, that this may be related to a large number of NICs in the
machine:

(In fact, I have 21 interfaces, most of them are assigned to VLANs on a trunk).
