If you specifically write in your job's requirements expression
something that references Memory, then condor_submit won't automatically
fill it in for you. We have the same situation here, where available
virtual memory is more important than half the available physical
memory, so I add to our job requirements:

(VirtualMemory >= ImageSize) && (Memory =!= Undefined)

You need that (Memory =!= Undefined) to keep condor_submit from filling
in a comparison with ImageSize for you. Hope that helps.
