I don't understand this at all.  I am running "top -osize" and the first line
is top itself.

  915 darcy     28    0   276G  760K onproc    0:00  0.00%  0.00% top

Not bad for a 128 MB system with 18GB of disk.  Is this some sort of
"Virtual, virtual memory?"

Note that the system doesn't seem to be suffering in any way.  The
only thing that I have done recently is to add some options to my
kernel config that I had to root in the source to find.

options     SEMMNI=64
options     SEMMNS=256

Could this be giving me the weird errors?
