Hi,

I am encountering an out-of-memory error when using LXD 4.0.3 as a snap
package on Ubuntu 16.04. See further below for the exact log output.

The scenario in which this error occurs is somewhat complex, but
basically it is a Makefile performing the following tasks:

1. Create a container (call it "container 1").
2. Build lots of software in that container.
3. When finished, create a second container (call it "container 2")
4. Built even more software in "container 2".

In step 3 LXD hangs with the message "Creating container 2" and after
a while crashes with an out-of-memory exception.

When I restart the job at step 3 directly, it works without problems.
I.e. the error only occurs when the machine does a whole lots of stuff
beforehand.

Do you have any idea how I could debug this problem to give more
useful information about this problem?

Or do you even have an idea what could be wrong?

Note: I used LXD version 3.9 before, but as a Debian package (no snap),
there were no such problems.

Best,
Holger
