Hmmm...  So thats why my 8meg machine starts seriously pageing when
vmstat gives avm ~3600k?  That megabyte is too precious to waste---
I gave up on X11 because it pages too much.  Going to 4k sounds good
too.  How much would this change increase the time spent servicing
page-faults?  Probably not significant compared to the gains from
better utilization of physical memory.
