I have this i386 running NetBSD 1.6 and it's connected to a 10Mbs Lan
through a Linksys USB100M adapter (RealTek 8150).  As soon a I tried to
send a file over to another machine I got the "out of nmbclusters" thing.
So I bumped it up to 4096.  Tonight I tried to send some larger files over
and "out of nmbclusters" again.  So I bumped it up to 8192, then 16384,
finally 32768.

But the curious thing is.  Now I can scp a 50 MB file and don't run out
of buffers.  BUT then the next time I try to send a large file (say 30MB),
it gets partway through and runs out of buffers.  Could there be a
nmbcluster leak?
