the default length of a request is 131072 bytes, i.e. 128KiB

I think I increased it to four times that before I realised something
had gone wrong!

I don't know how long the bad slaves had gone offline, weeks, I think.
We have quite a few of them.

Now, we've imposed ulimit on the "smokeping" userID, so that the
slaves will die instead of eating the entire system.
