Package: ia32-apt-get
Version: 20
Severity: normal

I apppear to be getting the Dynamic mmap error which I think is related to having a lot of pacakges in the database. I've got all of experimental,unstable,testing,stable in my original sources.list plus some additional sources in sources.list.d. I had to increase 

APT::Cache-Limit "30000000";

In order to get it working again.
