[erlang-questions] Erlang shell crashes

Dear all,

I'm using erlang emulator version 5.4.3 for running an application that has
to be run round the clock.
The application has ran perfectly for more than 15 hours.
Then the erlang shell is terminated abnormally.
The general information of the crash report is

  Slogan eheap_alloc: Cannot allocate 373664380 bytes of memory (of type
"heap"). Node name '' Crashdump created on Thu Oct 26 08:48:46
2006 System version Erlang (BEAM) emulator version 5.4.3 [threads:0] Compiled
Wed Dec 15 12:59:41 2004 Memory allocated 1111921780 bytes Atoms 5644 Processes
716 ETS tables 76 Funs 370

Whether any latest erlang version can solve this problem?
Is there any settings available to solve this problem?
I'm running erlang using werl.exe; Whether running erlang using erl.exe will
show any difference?
Please clarify...
Thanks in advance.

with regards,
