If memory serves (yes, pun intended) there's a TMEM resource you can
modify with ResEdit to alter that behavior -- from the MetaCard "Read Me":
A "TMEM" resource controls use of the MacOS memory management system.
It contains two bytes. The first byte controls whether temporary
memory is used for normal heap management (1 for yes, 0 for no). The
second byte controls whether temporary memory is used for pixmap
storage (window backing pixmaps and images, 1 for yes, 0 for no). By
default both are enabled, and can be changed only with a resource
editor (e.g., Resedit). If you set one or both bytes to 0, you'll
also have to increase the MetaCard application partition size in the
Finder (figure about 6MB + the size of all stacks you'll be editing).
That was written before the engine added the ability to get and set Mac
resources. If one had time and interest they could write a GUI for
modifying those TMEM values in a standalone.
