Hi Rik,

With kernel 2.4.1, I found that caching is way too aggressive. I was
running konqueror in 32Mb (the quest for a lightwieght browser!)
Unfortunately, the system seemed to insist on keeping 16Mb used for
caches, with 15Mb given to the application and X. This led to a lot of
swapping and paging by konqueror. I think the browser would be fully
usable in 32Mb, were the caching not out of balance.
