Although in this particular case on this particular machine might be  
triggered by a very high usage of memory space it is not the cause of  
the underlying problem. If by chance you machine/OS/memory layout  
happened to allocate Squeak's object memory starting at 2gb - 2mb and  
you loaded even a small image you would be in danger; as soon as your  
objectmemory address space *crosses* 2gb it is a problem.
