Yes, that did the trick. The particular Cache-Limit number is obviously
meaningful -- I don't lack for memory so I also tried doubling the
number given in the article -- that also crashed.
However, to make the entire process succeed, I also needed to reduce the
number of sources in my sources.list below what I like.
