The error message means that the address space of the Erlang emulator
has been exhausted. The current limit in JAM is about 240M. The limit
has recently been increased i the new and better BEAM system.
Hopefully the emulator produced a file named erl_crash.dump. It
should contain useful information about the inner state of the
emulator just before it gave up.
