But it would seem we shouldn't be anywhere near these limits. I have 
only 256MB of RAM here, and have the same problems. Also, Mathematica 
version 4.2 has no problems with this evaluation.

I'm fairly sure that this is an actual bug in the implementation of 
OneStepRowReduction in v5, rather than memory limits.
