I am running Mathematica on a 386 pc and am experiencing a rather
strange error. At a certain point in the execution the program
halts and says

    HEAPMGMT - corruption in heap
        (Fwd and Bwd links don't match)
      Applicable address:0014:30D4C8
    Call stack dump:
I then have to reboot. Can anyone tell me if this is a Mathematica
problem or a problem with Mathematica interacting with this specific
platform? Or is it just a coding error on my part? Any help will be

I have posted this to sci.math.symbolic about a week ago 
but have received no responses. Essentially I would just like to
know what this message means. My guess is that "something is getting
too large". I could give more details if I knew what was in fact 
relevant to the problem. Once again, even the slightest inkling of
what may be going on will be appreciated.
