What would this fix?

I remember several reports about FFmpeg "leaking" 
memory where the users just meant that one of 
the libraries allocated more memory than the 
user meant is sane, sometimes even using the 
magical signs "DOS".
I don't remember a report about 16kx16k being 
too small...

(I really don't care and certainly don't object)
