Yea, that is how far I got with my guessing.  4 GB RAM should be enough,
especially as I have 6 or 8 GB Swap.  Never before did I run out of that.

Anyhow, as I said I would be willing to file the reports, just need a
hint under what package do I do it.  This is why I wrote here.  If there
is another list I should write to please let me know too.  I am willing
to put time and work into this so it can be fixed for all  (including me
of course ;-) )
