It's completely beyond me how 256 MiB can be too little...

For comparision, my system right now has little more than that in use --
with 157M alone being consumed by a single program; i.e. everythnig else
taken together, including disk buffers and all, at less than 150M...

Something fishy must be going on there :-(
