    I got bitten by this one a while back, in the config ther is an option for
    maximum memory in the system, this is set to 1024_*MB*_ to begin with.

    It's a safe assumption to say that you do not have more than 1GB memory,
    so that option should be good at 1024...

    I read that option and put 65536 thinking that was the correct size... boy
    was I wrong.... :)
