picasa + suse: ulimit -v unlimited

I installed Picasa on openSUSE 10.2 but it would not start.

After some playing with WINEDEBUG=1 and strace I noticed many failures of mmap. Kissed by the debugging muse I tried ulimit -v unlimited and that was it. Problem solved. See also SOFTVIRTUALLIMIT in /etc/sysconfig/ulimit.

Level 2: take the directory with 3500 images and sort it somehow.
