The problem was that an error occured, so Seaside was trying to send an 
email about it. But generating the stack trace for the email resulted in 
another error. This recursively triggered another attempt to create an 
email. The runaway process consumed 850MB of memory, and did not trigger 
the low space watcher, probably because it was a low priority (30) process 
(probably a Seaside request handler).
Someone who's more familiar with Seaside should fix this issue. There may 
even be a patch for this in the official repository.

To fix the problem, I downloaded the image, terminated the runaway 
process, saved it as a new version, and uploaded it. Then I stopped the 
service, modified it to use the new image, and restarted it.
I assume this has no side effects, but it would be great if someone more 
familiar with the image could take a look.
