I got bitten by this one a while back, in the config ther is an option for
maximum memory in the system, this is set to 1024_*MB*_ to begin with.

It's a safe assumption to say that you do not have more than 1GB memory,
so that option should be good at 1024...

I read that option and put 65536 thinking that was the correct size... boy
was I wrong.... :)
