(1) The code to determine the bucket table size (hash key size)
    can be divisble by arbitrary powers of 2.
    This leads to performance degradation.

(2) For large tables the implementation allocates large
    chunks of memory.  This is a problem when you have
    address space fragmentation.  Also the way
    it allocates memory leads to address space fragmentation on
    the Windows platform.

    On Linux using large memory blocks degrade performance.
    (Has to do how memory is allocated)


(1) Check if table size is divisible by two, if this is the 
    case increase table size by 1.

(2) Limit the size of the chunks allocated.


* Still needs to check what the appropriate limit is in case
  of Linux.  Now just use 4Mb as limit.
