This is very likely a misconfiguration. You are "pushing the edge case" too close to the edge; leave some margin.

How much virtual memory do you have available? Are *any* other programs running which might require unswappable RAM (note: some OSs launch CPU and memory hungry tasks at times)?

And, just for clarity for diagnosing your particular use-case...

Is this Prime95 (WinBlows) or mprime (Linux)? In either/both case(s), please always give the full underlying version of the distribution to assist with the analysis matrix.
