Ran it stock, sorted, read a thread a while back about someone who thought
you should have mysql first, then imap, then blah blah blah, nothing made
any difference.  The machine tends to always show about 98% memory used,
although at any point in time 1/2 of that could be inact.  The malloc
errors in the apache logs made me consider the idea of adding more memory
to the box (but there are always pundits that say, "wow, more than 2g?").
