Memory errors / timeouts with affine registration on Windows #694
After merging the affine registration branch, and Omars fixes for NaNs, we've got a couple of remaining errors on the Windows buildbots:
I guess the two errors may be related, with the second caused by the machine starting to thrash on swap rather than generating a MemoryError ?
yes, I tried to reproduce the time-out bug on two windows machines but I couldn't. The memory usage was always reasonable. I have observed similar time-outs and memory errors in my institution's cluster when another user with admin privileges runs a relatively heavy process. It happens like this:
I have observed a process that normally runs in 50 minutes time-out after 4 hours!
May be something similar happened with the buildbot? do you think it is possible that the buildbot machine was running another heavy process while the test was being executed (maybe an automatic update or something like that)?
