That's wrong. Memory reservation fixes bug 16023. Without it most 
applications fail to even start in FreeBSD 7.0.

You can test for yourself, reverting my memory reservation patch and try 
to run the Flash Player 10 installer. You can grab this installer there:

This installer is nice because it exhibits both the memory reservation 
problem, and starts threads.
