Yeah.  This is probably the wrong thing to do for the non-GATEWAY case.

Or make mb_map resizeable.  I hate static configuration.

I prefer to run "cvs log" on specific files; too bad it doesn't work

Having too many buffers for the non-GATEWAY case is little better than
having few in the GATWAY case.  Both are equally broken.
