I suspected that and the DOMU has moved from 8GB to the current 12GB
(living at 10GB for while) and it really didn't seem to make any notable
difference.  The panics appeared to happen at pretty much the same
rate.  I can't discount memory fragmentation, but I can't really say
that is much of a factor either.  The system really should not need
anything like 12GB, and in fact top says that almost 9GB is free at this
