Hmmm, just 256M used seems on the low side. There must be a way to see
how much memory is locked down, that would be a more useful measure of
how close you are to the edge (any gurus out there know of an
incantation to do that?).

No, I don't think that would be the case. I suspect the reason is you
don't have enough memory to lock down all the libraries your particular
