This sort of thing always reminds me to use /etc/login.conf more often
than I do...  I've spent the past few weeks working with Solaris 2.7
systems which like to preallocate swap before they need it.  I really
miss FreeBSD after running a mod_perl server which eats up tens of
megs of swap just because Solaris thinks it should. :-( :-(
