This is what happens when cd /usr/tmp/replica/slurpd.replog hits a few
gigs. It tries to load the whole thing into RAM, apparently. I had to
throw it away.

'man slurpd', note the "-f" option. The directive for one's replogfile is not
where they are being stored, but merely where they are placed before being moved to
the work area.

The replog itself had two entries, repeated a few million times, for
replication. I don't know why. (A bug in moving data over to the tmp area?)
Since I noted some errors on the bug pages, I also changed my replica
directives to use IP numbers, rather than dns, which may have helped.
