Anyone ever seen this one, or know what to do about it?

expire: failed to malloc 538178400 bytes at dbz.c line 1292

this usually results in INN upsetness

I've got 512MB of RAM, with 1GB of swap (which seems like plenty for 
expire), running INN 2.4.0 with ovdb and mostly cnfsbufs on FreeBSD 4.7
My history file is quite large (4GB) though I just rebuilt history and 
knocked it down to around 2.2GB.  I have large file support enabled for 
my cnfsbufs, so I apparently cannot use the hashed history.
