I am told that blocks in the memory filesystem (mfs) can end up in the
buffer cache: this double-whammy on memory can lead to memory exhaustion.
The problem is compounded (I do not understand how or why) when multiple
mfs are in use.

Is there any bug-fix or work-around for the memory-inefficiency/exhaustion
issue?  Can somebody outline what a fix would look like?
