How much memory does your system have? How complicated are the matrix
elements themselves? The symbolic inversion of larger matrices requires a
lot of memory. Formatting of the result for printing or display adds to
the memory requirements. I don't think there is a bug; I can invert an 8x8
matrix with simple elements on my system with 64 MB memory.
