Actually the problem is probably that each domain has a "max memory"
setting which is the maximum to which the balloon can be
inflated. Currently I believe this is always set to the initial memory
size (ie. the balloon can only be deflated, and then inflated back up
to its original size).

This can easily be fixed (eg. another argument to xi_build). I'll look
into it this afternoon.
