Duh! I can be rather dumb at times (no comments please). :-)

That should read. 4GB of disk at about 10K per object makes 400000
objects at 80 bytes each = 32MB memory. That is probably a worst
case figure - my average object size seems to be more around 15-20K.

As you can see it is very dependant on the size of the objects
in your cache, so do a tally of your own cache and have a look.
