Nope, it is only 2.2Meg!

About 2.8Meg

Unlikely, most of the files are source code or compiled object files.
All I know is that I seem to be hitting some sort of limit - my coda
works fine but if I compile up a particular tree I start getting
problems with files not staying in cache on my laptop.  It does seem
to be related to the number of files I have in my volume because the
problem goes away if I remove files from the volume.

This is on a NetBSD 1.5-ish machine running 5.3.5, I have plenty of
free diskspace on the machine.
