Interesting, as you might expect this shouldn't be happening.

RVM is a pain to debug, but just in case.

- Make sure there are no zombied venus processes hanging around.
    killall -9 venus

- Is there enough diskspace available (at least 3MB for RVM)

- Anything in the output of 'dmesg', maybe the kernel's OOM killer has
  shot us down.

- Are there any memory allocation limits set (ulimit -d -m -v)

- It looks like we were initializing RVM otherwise the message would
  have stated 'Loading RVM data...', but next time run venus with the
  -init flag to make sure we are doing the right thing. Once RVM is
  correctly initialized we don't need to run with -init anymore.
