Doug said the same, yet the PG Tuning article recommends not make this
too large as it is just temporary used by the query queue or so. (I
guess the system would benefit using more memory for file system cache)

So who is correct? The tuning article or big-honking-shared-mem

FWIW: I have a box with 512 MB RAM and see no different between 4096 and
32758 shared buffers...
