> If this uses RAM you are seriously in trouble of running out of memory
The default maximum size is 1/2 of the amount of RAM available. You may
adjust that via command-line parameter. It runs out of "disk" space
rather than eat up all available RAM.
Of course, ensure that you don't really NEED that RAM for active
processes else you'll be in swap city. :-)

That the scratch for my itch. VMWare and the default /var/run clean up
script don't play well together -- it's not a bad thing that happens,
just a minor annoyance with extra messages during boot. /var/run doesn't
hold anything that needs to persist between boots, and doesn't hold a
lot of data, so it was a good solution for me.
