[ale] new box crashes when nmapped



Your box is seriously broken!  That should cause absolutely no problem
on any Linux box.  It is, I think, incorrect or, in any case unusual
usage, as the previous poster noted.

Your system's problem could be anything from lack of memory to needing
a reboot to a bad kernel.
