No, just 512Mb. My pagefile is full (1024Mb), and there are lots of lock
'tmp' files in my temp directory (they are not FB ones). It is still running
(I guess I must have 5-6Gb in there by now), and the database is still being
displayed as 3MB. I waiting to see if Windows or FB dies first!

Linux 2.4.4-4GB
