Avail is not acting "funny" in OS4-final, it does what it always did,
trying to allocate a huge portion of memory.

The difference with OS4-final is that the kernel is using the memory
smarter now and doing quite some caching.
Seems like it is a little reluctant to free resources
in order to keep things fast and stable.

Just try to get the concept of absolute memory figures out of
your head, this is a relic from the days when A500's were
equipped with 1 MB at max.
If you really run out of memory - get some more.
Unless filling the ram-disk on purpose I can't run out
of memory here with "only" 512 MB.
