Q: FindRoot

my system is running on: 
NT4SP5 128MB Ram
Mathematica 3.01 (Student)

I want to find a numerical Solution for an equation (containing some
Bessel-functions) ...==0 So I use FindRoot.
As starting point I give a close value (5.6 which is close to the
solution 5.68254).

Mathematica starts to calculate and I watch the memory consumptions.
When it is close to 90MB (whole System, including mathematica) it
stops saying:
Out of Memory. Exiting.

Is there a bug?

It should at least be able to use up to 120MB before exiting.

Any Hints?
