   Hmm the one suspicious process I see is the Xorg one which appears to
   be using up much more virtual space than it normally should...  I think
   that there were xorg related changes on netbsd-5 too.  Does restarting
   X11 return the system to a normal state?

i think this is OK.  my Xorg appears to be using 470MB of VA,
but it doesn't have this issue.

processes show the entire mapped space they have these days
and some of the graphics cards allow for large mappings.
