Subject: Re: [Caml-list] memory usage
Good news, I just tested the patch and it works great with my application!
I just had to modify the module random since a call to (Random.int
max_int) may raise and exception (it is made for 32 bits integers).
So I guess that modification should be included in the patch.

Thanks a lot Andres.
Jean
