    (anyone having the leak troubles)

    Have you seen the problem with free showing 4G of buffers or such? If
    you see that, (and if it _does_ have the same consequences as in 2.3.x)
    death isn't far away. I made a booboo in 2.3.x in using try_to_free_buffers
    which caused the exact symptoms reported for 2.2.11. MM gets very upset
    (murderously so) when buffermem doesn't get updated properly ;)

    The symptoms were remarkably similar, so I thought I'd mention it as
    something to watch for.
