I'm running Tor on Leopard (G4 Mac mini, 1 GByte) behind a pfSense
1.2.1 firewall on a WRAP (state table size now up to 60 kStates, memory
requirements and load negligible). I haven't done anything to the 
Tor process, which currently requires, according to top:

  163 tor         12.8% 10:56:55   2    28   2599  135M+  200K   150M-  230M+

So far it doesn't seem as if I'm running into any limits yet. I did
run into firewall's state table limit at 10 kStates, which however
didn't result in a crash.
