    I'm trying to get xplor3.851 running on a ES40 on loan from Compaq
to see how it runs!  I wanted to compare results to some older runs I
have but several of my jobs keep crashing.  For example,

 XPATRT: of those the     4000 highest peaks will be used
 %VEHEAP-ERR: could not satisfy storage request for    23588103 bytes
 Subroutine DIE called . Terminating

Interestingly these same jobs run just fine on my SGI which has 1/3 the
amount of memory and swap space.  This make me think it has something to
do with the kernal limits but I don't know which to change and by how

Potentially pertinant iinformation:
# ulimit -a
time(seconds)        unlimited
file(blocks)         unlimited
data(kbytes)         262144
stack(kbytes)        16384
memory(kbytes)       2038936
coredump(blocks)     unlimited
nofiles(descriptors) 4096
vmemory(kbytes)      4194304

# swapon -s

Total swap allocation:

Thanks in advance for any and all insights!
