Me too... Buffindexed ovmethod do that?

I don't know how this ovmethod *realy* works, but why does it do mmap'ing
over a buffer size? Sorry for dumb question...

I started with zero'ed OV buffer a few weeks ago and OV crashed with 
45-46% buffer usage. I can test it again today night or tomorrow. So I'll
do "dd if=/dev/zero of=/path/to/buff bs=1k count=2000000". And
"makehistory -O" of course. I'll let you know.
