Does it stop too early because it thinks memory use will be too high? 
This format's use of that argument (without the division) looks sane to me.

Division by 4 does ring a bell though: Maybe it's somehow related to the 
fact the maximum size of a single allocation in OpenCL is usually just a 
quarter of total main memory?

Claudio, are you reading this? Any idea?
