I think you have the 3:1 split backwards. as I understand it the kernel gets the 3G portion and userspace gets 1G.
there are patches to allow you to change it to 2G:2G and I believe I've seen either a 3:1 or a 2.5:1.5 (I don't remember which at the moment) but as you cut down the amount of address space available to the kernel other problems become more common.
