I had a strange exit from a LilyPond run.  I've never seen this before.
  I was running a collection of nearly 70 etudes.  It appeared to be
running just fine.  I got lots of "Preprocessing..." and
"Interpreting..." etc. and then when it got to "Fitting music on 86 or87
pages..." it didn't progress any further for a long time.  I let it run
overnight to see if Lily just needed more time to think about it.  When
I got up in the morning I found this:

As Hans said, the error means that you ran out of memory. Does it help if you use the minimal page-breaking algorithm as described in section 11.4.5 of the manual?


Uh..yuh. That did it. Thanks! After Hans commented about memory I tried running my file again with the Task Manager open showing performance stats. When LilyPond got to the page calculation and didn't progress further I saw the Page File Usage climb steadily upwards. This box has 2Gb of physical RAM and I shut down Lily when it got up to about 1.93Gb of usage. Then I used your suggestion about minimal page breaking and not only did it work but it cut down the processing time to under three minutes.
