is there anything else running on this machine and consuming memory,  
although not requested? virtual_free is a guidance for SGE and will  
not be enforced.

4G - 1G would 3G, but the lower value of the calculated consumable  
and the measured load value is taken - both are in effect. So,  
someting else is using memory.
