Yes, that's true. But I've never seen a Linux database that had a missing
TIP, which is the hallmark of too much stuff stuck in cache. The windows
problem is really that busy pages _never_ get written out and TIPs tend to
be busy. Forcing a cache flush from time to time should greatly reduce the
damage innocents can do to themselves.
