Meaning that searching no longer worked?  That's odd.

Did you set the pagesizes larger (to 16384 or something bigger)?  I found
the sizes to be about 1/3 as big.  I guess the entries were larger than
the 1024 byte page size and caused lots of wasted space, whereas with the
16384, all data for the entry fits into a page.

Can't say I'ved tried it on an OSF machine, though.
