What criteria did you use to determine that the front end has run
out of memory?  Under Windows NT, applications should be able to 
access as much memory as is available to the operating system
(physical RAM + whatever swap space is allocated).  If the front
end runs out of memory, then that means the operating system 
cannot allocate any more memory to _any_ application.

Perhaps you are misinterpreting your observations?
