Actually there are 2 lines with the same parameters, one in this section:
EVENT=analyze_LocalGDB analyzer=CCpp backtrace=

and that section:
EVENT=reanalyze_LocalGDB analyzer=CCpp

So do the 2 sizes add up in the same sub-directory making a total of 
8GiB or else how does it work? I have only 10GiB allocated to / (and 
/home is on a separate partition).

Thank you.
