I'm sure that's the case.  Afraid I don't have the slab stats, anymore.

The question is one of minimum efficiency.  With ~35M of 50M used, I
attempted to add a short key with one-byte value.

    i.e. "add TESTKEY10 0 0 1\r\n0\r\n"

..which failed thru several restarts after ~200K operations.  However,
a 64M max has made it thru 1.5M ops.  Just a case of my inputs, or
there's some practical min above 15MB?
