Running out of memory for Static Meshes possibly?  If that is the case
then this tweak from the ut2004-linux FAQ may possibly fix it.

Q: I've got an awesome box, but I can't get more than 9 fps on AS-
Mothership. Help!
A: Open up your UT2004.ini file and change VARSize=32 to VARSize=64. It
should be under the [OpenGLDrv.OpenGLRenderDevice] section. That should
do the trick. VARSize controls how much static geometry in megabytes can
be cached in AGP memory.
