Fresh Shibby firmware install has very high NVRAM used

    On my RT-N66U, I just went from 1.28.0497 MIPSR2-Toastman-RT-N K26 USB VPN to Shibby's tomato-K26USB-1.28.RT-N5x-MIPSR2-120-AIO-64K (newest version)

    Before I flashed the firmware through the web ui, I cleared the NVRAM. After the new firmware loaded, I cleared the NVRAM, but it shows on the status page:

    Total / Free NVRAM64.00 KB / 36.90 KB (57.65%)

    Why would this be so high on a fresh install? Does this have anything to do with the fact that my router shipped with 32kb of NVRAM and doesn't have the new CFE? I read everywhere that messing with the CFE wasn't needed anymore as Shibby's mod would automatically deal with the 32k CFE.

    Shibby's Tomato (especially AIO) has more features, and consequently more NVRAM is used.

    Seems about normal. I'm running Victek's latest "g" version on my RT-N66U and my numbers almost match yours:
