I haven't seen my mail echo back from the list yet so perhaps this has
been discussed to death already but there seem to be some useful hints in

In particular:
[begin quote]
If "out of memory" errors sometimes occur, or if your machine does lots
of networking, increasing min_free_pages to 64 or more may be a good

free_pages_low should probably be about double of min_free_pages.
[end quote]

I think I'll try fiddling with this and see if the problems go away.
