Thanks Leslie and James.

I've opened a call with support.

When I came in last Friday morning the system
had crashed sometime after I left work on Thursday.
No seedfile changes had been made.  The object count
is normally around 2,000 objects on the console ipmap.
That morning I could see the object count line behind
the pop-up error message and the object count was over
17,000.  I can't imagine where those objects came from.

After that I did do a clear databases but that didn't
seem to rid the problem.

Anyway, it's been downhill since then.

Thanks again.
