    Could it be you didn't have enough free swap? I.e. the tmpfs file
    system size seems to be capped by the amount of free memory.
 Unlikely.  I had two or three gigabytes of swap handy, and there was
 only about a gigabyte of RAM in use at the time, plus a few dozens of
 megabytes stored in the tmpfses.  So there should have been four or
 five gigabytes of memory free, not ten to twenty megabytes.
