Hi Eric,

I have just made some tests on my system (Windows XP SP2, Pentium IV 
HT2.6 GHz, 1 Go RAM) with 5.2 ans 6.0. As expected, Karl's notebook 
works fine with 5.2 (using less than 100 Mo of RAM); however, testing 
6.0 results in consuming all of the available memory (I killed the 
kernel after it had eating up 1.8 Go).

Regards,
Jean-Marc
