Just to clarify, is this RAM size the total amount of memory
in the client system, or is this something else?  eg the
amount of ram gluster is using on a client

Personally, I'm not sure using less than 1GB of RAM on the
client is a good idea.

Saying that because (ages ago), when getting our regression
testing suite to run in Rackspace, I started out with 512MB
RAM virtual machines.  The regression tests wouldn't complete
on them at all. ;)

Not sure if that's the issue here though. :)
