Actually, this isn't quite right. Retrospect for the Mac uses temp memory by
default. It's perfectly acceptable to leverage unused system memory in this
fashion (though very few programs do), and it's the best way for Retrospect
to have access to the memory it needs on-the-fly, without permanently using
up that vital system resource.

The easiest way to prevent Retrospect from using temp system memory is to
assign it more than 8,192 K in the Finder.
