        I have three tmpfses mounted, at

                /tmp (1 GB)
                /var/chroot/pbulk/2011Q3/tmp (2 GB)
                /var/chroot/pbulk/current/tmp (1 GB)

        Last night I started a bulk build chrooted in
        /var/chroot/pbulk/2011Q3.  A lot of packages started failing,
        and I noticed that `df -h' reported the tmpfses to have a size
        (not available space, but size) of 10--20 MB!  The exact size
        reported by df for each of the tmpfses varied over time between
        around ten and twenty megabytes, sometimes ten, sometimes
        fifteen, sometimes sixteen, &c.  After an hour or so, the
        tmpfses returned to their correct sizes of 1 GB or 2 GB.


        Do a bulk build with wrkobjdir set to a tmpfs in a chroot,


        Yes, please!
