OK, this is all consistent, whether you get this error or the "Can't
allocate" as you reported with the ansi image.  In effect, you can
only allocate half your alotted heap.  Can you please compile with
--enable-debug, run under gdb, break at either this point in the
traditional build of the "Can't allocate" error line in the ansi
build, run your test, and report a backtrace?

Take care,
