I see similar things in Solaris 2.6/Sparc. But this has been a LOT better
behaved when switching from the 1.2.3 release to the 1.2.6 release.

I have yet to spend some time investigating this (ie, when I can offer a fix for
it I will put in an "Official" groan and patch). If anyone has some hints (about
where to start looking) they would appreciated, it seems to be the machines that
are searched the most chew the most RAM.
