Yea, I think David is on to it. This is an old system. It's Centos 5.2. 
On 2.6.18-92.el5. I've had this server since 2006.
I believe David when he says that what you want to do is too new for 
this OS. And on that topic there is good news and bad news.
The good news is that one way or another 1 Nov. this server will no 
longer be a problem in that regard. The bad news is that this means that 
Jenkins will be moving to another server. I am confident that this will 
not cause a disruption in service for our Jenkins server.
So, this will not be a problem in the near future. That may not help 
with this coming release of Squeak.

I'll email David username/password to the box in a sec.
