If I'm reading this thread correctly, it seems users' actually memory on
their machines were fairly conservative -- up to 4MB it seems -- but
increasing the graphics cache by users seemed to solve the problem. Is this
a correct assessment?

Could these issues be rectified by more information on the use of Memory
