Beware of having one Profile owning all objects. THere is a limit as to the 
amount of space that the "security table" associated with a profile can occupy. 
As objects are deleted, their space in this table
is not recovered/reused. The only way to recover the space is to "crash" the 
machine, the IPL will recbuild the table.

This said, I have experienced this at one clients site with a VERY LARGE number 
of objects, as well as a larege volume of temporary files. I have heard of two 
other sites with similar problems.
