Boo, hiss!!! If your good enough with adb to make that patch you could probably
figure out how to do the "right" thing... lower the number to say 2MB left
before getting that irritating icon.  Kinda defeats the purpose of a daemon
process if you tell it to never wake up and tell you something.  Personally,
I would be comfortable with 1 meg but others may feel differently.
