I think 1GB is too much for the OS. Assuming that not all running  
programs will really use up the memory up to the last reserved byte,  
for me it's working fine to set physical memory=exechost setting. As  
swapping is only occuring seldom, it's even sufficient to have a  
small swap space from 1 GB or less on disk.
