s3cmd kills server

    Hello, I am using s3cmd version 1.0.0 on a Centos 5.6 x64 VPS with 2GHz processor and 4GB memory. I am trying to upload a 250MB file to a bucket and before completion the server dies for ten minutes. I have been able to reproduce this. Bind stops responding, The server does not respond to ping.

    Seems like all the server resources get consumed by s3cmd, that it uses up all available CPU so that the server becomes non responsive.

    I have been trying for several days to get Joomla backups taken with akeeba stored on S3 and reproducibly during the backup process my server would die.

    Any idea of what is going on?
