If you start Audacity on a Linux machine where /tmp is mounted in RAM
using tmpfs (for increased performance using JACK with a journaling
filesystem) then Audacity complains there is 'very little free disk
space on this volume'. Seems to work OK though - I assume that if
Audacity's demands exceed the available RAM, then the swap partition
will be used.

OK - bad idea. I just imported two WAV files of 60MB each on a machine
with 384MB RAM. All was well, until I tried an amplify effect on one
file, and the machine thrashed the disc for an hour until I did a
hard reboot. I have 'make a copy' selected on the preference for
importing uncompressed files.
I'll be changing my Audacity temp file location back to ~/tmp then...
