I did not do anything that would affect overall performance, although
I did set the squeak VM build job to run at low priority to avoid
impacting the interactive web server. I also have a moderately effective
watchdog process (running in the Squeak image) that kills the VM if
it gets stuck part way through a VM build. Hopefully that will
prevent runaway images in the future, but I'll need to keep an
eye on it for a while.

As of this morning the InterpreterVM job seems to be working fairly
well. Check out http://box3.squeak.org/job/InterpreterVM/
