  I hope you're not saying that using 9GB of virtual memory is intended
behaviour! That's more than the history, index, and copies thereof!

  I assume this is some form of bug, because earlier versions of 2.3
certainly didn't require this much VM, even with much larger history
files. Hopefully there's a bug in the way the memory needs are calculated.
