OK. The fact that less memory is needed for 2 columns, can probably  
be explained by the number of pages being roughly doubled.

As Vincent pointed out, the main cause is then the fact that (3 *  
space-width) represents a bigger portion of short lines. Basing that  
width on the actual line-width indeed sounds like the right idea to  
begin with.

If no one beats me to it, I'll have a look at changing that one of  
the coming days.
