What do you mean by "fewer large arrays are possible"? Randomization of shared libraries in FC4 happens in the first ~128MB of virtual memory. You should have no expectation of continuity in that area, and it's not a problem. The other 2.9 GB of virtual memory is not affected by this, there you can have as large arrays as you wish to.
