Various versions of JVM have various faults, where they crash, instead of throwing OutOfMemoryError. Also, you can occasionally run out of other types of resource than Java heap; OutOfMemoryError is specific to running out of Java heap.
However, stepping back, are you sure that your application does not have a memory leak? You described it as a TCP client program, which does not sound to me like a memory-hungry application. If there is a leak, and you fix it, then this and other problems will likely go away.
Betty Rubble? Well, I would go with Betty... but I'd be thinking of Wilma.
Core dumps are always tough, but you're running an unsupported JVM on an unsupported O/S (that is, both are past EOL).
Since the Linux 2.4 kernel has an totally abhorant thread model I'd really encourage an upgrade. Java never played well with this model and, in my experience, things improved greatly with the 2.6 kernel and the 1.4 JDK.
