Has anyone heard what the cause of the outage was?

Mikael wrote about memory shortage. I have heard the same -- though
not from press contacts but from staff. It was worded (but in
swedish, so bear with my translation): "The official reason is
'memory shortage'. I do believe it is correct."

There have been words in the grapevine about not going for full memory on 
line cards and RP, for "optimisation reasons". Sounds like a fine recipe 
for promoting cascading failures from a fragile base config.
