I got a person with problems using the Wormbase WS149 database with AceDB on
When he tries to dump all objects from Wormpep, AceDB dies and throws a memory
(Memory allocation failure when acedb requested 301989888 bytes, acedb has
already allocared 1134799304 bytes)
Now that wouldn't be too unusual if the machine wouldn't be a 3GB RAM windows
2003 server with a 4GB paging file. So the free memory is there, it just cannot
allocate it. As far as I remember there was some kind of slight issue with
allocating more than 2GB in one chunk in Windows, but 1.4 GB should be fine.
On a 32bit i686 GNU/Linux machine it needs to allocate 1501MB to dump all
objects and does so without any errors.
