Venus allocates some rvm space depending on the cache size.
Rvm data cannot be bigger than about 1G, so watch what your Venus says
at startup. I think to be safe you want your rvm log size and rvm data size
together be under 1G. That means with 5.5G cache you are "definitely" safe.
6G did work for me once (I did not fully fill it), 8G does not. YMMV.

RVM's limitations are going to be addresses at some point, and will
be of no big significance on 64-bit systems, but for the moment we have
to obey them...
