On BSD/OS systems, there have been occasional chicken-and-egg problems with
needing to allocate memory to start doing anything that would free up memory
under *really* heavy load. The answer support gives is to increase KMEMSIZE,
and indeed, this works beautifully - I'm wondering if the same advice is
likely to apply?
