I had a look, that's a no-go. When mmap was introduced the code was 
simplified a bit. I'm not going to make it worse again. We still need to 
re-write it from scratch (with "scratch" meaning the original non-Jumbo 

Also, I don't observe any gain from disabling mmap and only minimal gain 
from using --mem=0 when mmap is enabled (I stopped using -mem after mmap 
was implemented). I'm surprised by your results, especially given you 
were short on memory... or is it *because* of just that..?

The only dupe suppresion active unless you use either --loopback or 
explicit --dupe-suppress is the same you have in non-Jumbo: adjacent 
dupes. But they are logged when using --mem, I presume that's what 
confused you. Whenever full dupe suppression happens, you'll see it 
clearly logged, as in:

0:00:00:00 - dupe suppression: hash size 16777216, temporarily 
allocating 171108864 bytes
