In doing further research, I discovered that to optimize the
garbage-collection process, the total heap is usually managed in 2 or
more segments, a large one for long-lived objects and smaller ones for
initial allocation of small objects and promotion into the main heap.
These are usually run as a percentage of total heap space, but the
controls vary by JVM. Tweaking these appropriately should allow the
large buffered-image to consume a larger percentage of total heap
