I just discovered that ruby allocates memory in 8Mb chunks.
Forgive my ignorance.
Is there a way to change this behaviour? Since my app runs in an
environment with very strict memory constraints, a memory spike of 8Mb
can be lethal...
I would change it to a lower figure.
It doesn't matter if I have to patch my ruby source files in order to
achieve this goal.
Any clues?

Thank you in advance,
Emanuele Ricci.
