As soon as the 'maximum_object_size' limit is reached, the entry goes
into a mode where we free the memory up to the lowest offset of all
clients reading the data. So normally, if there is only one
client then that large object will not up any memory.

There are still some bugs, and I have yet to merge the changes
since 1.1.7 and 1.1.8.
