So would this problem be remedied if I switched the system from i386 to amd64?
Would the limits be more to my tastes, or do they behave similarly under the
same memory conditions?
I still do not quite get it to fit in my head that we didn't have the problem
with NetBSD 5; we could just set the NMBCLUSTERS to something quite bigger
there and be happy.
