"couldn't open sender again", "failed dial attempt"

   $ ipfs ls /ipfs/QmSK3bexiPwd7PwhsSBTRvPpp5XUmaUkLchE8rz6vSBKsK
06:04:26.421 ERROR    bitswap: couldnt open sender again after SendMsg(<peer.ID WbFY7k>) failed: dial attempt failed: context deadline exceeded wantmanager.go:223

Ideas what might be wrong here?

That was a test file, but I’m also getting this on several other files as well:

Update on this: I turned on --routing=dhtclient as recommended for dealing with memory problems, and it seems to have made these errors go away as a side-effect.
