It seems to be related to the ammount of physical ram, not total VM.
I guess some things refuse to be swapped out.  I consider this a bug,
I'm sure IBM considers it a feature.  I had this happen with DB/2
on AIX5 also, though reducing some of the instance settings helped.
Why cp or tar would do it is a mystery to me.
