yes of course, it is what I 'm trying todo : found the hightest value to
speedup the initiale load AND having a value that avoid a out of memory.

But due to that flush-size is based on the number of objects and not
their size, it is difficult to prevent an out of memory when
a change occurs on a lot of "bigger than average" objects.
is it possible that flush-size uses the actual size of the malloc
instead of the number of objects ?
or is this option too little used to make it important?
