I'm using either two or four threads (based on what linux shows with "cat proc/cpuinfo" and getting this on many of them. I have at least one that I knocked down to a single thread and still see it. I adjusted all the maxmems to match well less than what "top" shows free. Most of the machines have 4GB RAM.

I forgot to ask, in the allocation message, is the size given what is wanted or what is available?

These messages are at just a few minutes into a run, when a full stage 1 will take several hours. This makes it "seem" that it hasn't anything to do with stage 2, but since stage 1 isn't supposed to use much memory and I should have a fair chunk, it's puzzling to me.
