Hello Markus,

I assume you are doing things on Intel Linux,
that is the only system I have played with rvm on.

I think it should be the other way around,

 starting address: 0x50000000
 heap len:         0x3fefd000

Besides that, the area starting at 0x80000000 is not totally safe,
it is used under some special circumstances, should not hit you though.

I am running now with rvm in files (a lot easier to administer, and less
swap usage, according to Jan), with 768Mb RVM data, i.e. as much as fits
between 0x50000000 and 0x80000000.
