My computer currently has enough RAM to run several sessions, but it can't get any work.

7/21/2015 7:40:38 PM | BURP | Message from server: Blender needs 9816.00 MB RAM but only 5749.41 MB is available for use.

It appears that BURP won't send any work if the computer has less RAM than the largest session requires, even if smaller sessions are available. Is there a fix for this?

I think it may be writing out that notice while at the same time (or rather a few nanoseconds later) it is sending you work for one of the smaller ones. I have no idea why it is printed in the client when it just happens to be because it goes through the list of sessions from the most "expensive" to the least expensive one in turn.
