Dear All:

	I am using Mathematica version 3.0 on an IBM
RS6000 43P running AIX 4.3 with 2 GB of real
memory (and a load of swap).  My problem is this:

	While there is clearly 1.6 GB of memory free, my
Mathematica program runs out of memory and gives
the error

Out of Memory.  Exiting.

once it consumes something like 160 MB (determined
by following in top) of memory.  I checked out
ulimit and it returned unlimited.  Is there
something that I am forgetting or need to
"switch?"  Any and all suggestions are welcome!

With regards,


P.S. I tried MemoryConserve as well...  same
problem.  This program works (albeit slowly) on my
PowerMac G3/266 with 160 MB of physical 600 MB
