You're right.  I just checked, and it didn't stop the space
from being allocated.  I'll move that branch of the code to
separate function so that it really works.  (The alternative
would be to alloc that buffer from a pool, allocating 8KB
from a pool would cause its own set of problems, because a
typical pool block doesn't have enough free space to handle
an alloc that large, so we'd often be allocating a new,
odd-sized block.)
