Description (partial)

During a signature update on the SSC-5 platform, sensorApp attempts to restart itself but fails.  The evidence is in the main.log logs:

05Aug2009 20:29:10.664 1.163 sensorApp[19277] sensorApp/W SensorApp has requested a restart to finish a signature update.
. . .
05Aug2009 20:30:40.873 0.000 sensorApp[3999] Syslog/F errSystemError threadStart catchunknown exception!

NOTE:  Original sensorApp (process ID 19277) requests a restart and then later the new (restarted) sensorApp (process ID 3999) fails with an unknown exception.

The sensorApp self restart only occurs if sensorApp detects that it is close to being out of memory.  This logic is specific to the SSC-5 platform due to its low memory capacity.
