Not sure what that 8M is.  It's not caching anything.
Be sure to strip the executables if you take the distributed ones --
I notice they are 300k to 600k whereas a stripped on is around
say 150k (that's compiled including the WAIS gateway code)
as they were compiled with debug flags on.

Anyone know what the 8M is?
