Hm. Okay. I'll bounce it up again.

Is there anywhere where I can read on a fairly high level how exactly
NMBCLUSTERS are used? I'd love to know why I'm changing numbers, rather
than simply worshipping the box that drops from the sky...

Is there a desired relationship betweem these two values? By default
NKMEMCLUSTERS appears to be 4096 on three different machines I've got
available right now.

Thanks in advance...
