frequently getting 'fork: Cannot allocate memory' when running commands over ssh. I have 64Gb of RAM and usually 1~2Gb free. swap is more than 8gb free

Ubuntu version:"Ubuntu 12.04.2 LTS" Desktop 64 bit

free -m output:

   total       used       free     shared    buffers     cached

Mem: 64386 64079 307 0 9840 41196 -/+ buffers/cache: 13042 51343 Swap: 7720 347 7373

ulimit -a output :
