Limiting the memory helps.

Hmm, let me try with 2.4; just a moment...
Without limiting memory
SMSqueakMap default reload

, but *not* with my home brewed
Linux karl 2.6.7 #1 Fri Jul 9 00:03:48 CEST 2004 i686 GNU/Linux
I remember some discussion about memory ranges and have upgraded to 2.6
recently; but my mind hasn't made the connection between these events
After looking into the discussion:
Since this is a serious problem, an ST changeset probably using David's
MemoryAddressesPlugin checking for the memory problem at startup and
both warning and hinting the user how to circumvent it, would be good,
if it takes longer to bugfix the VMs.
Does the MemoryAddressesPlugin catch this error in every case?
Does the workaround by manually limiting the memory work in each case?
BTW: a release shouldn't be made with this error IMO.
