Hi James,

It is my recollection that under AIX, there are per-user limits as to
how much memory a single process may consume. It may be that the user(s)
running. You may wish to have your system admin look at
/etc/security/limits but my recollection was that 256MB was the maximum
possible for data and stack to grow.

I don't have easy access to an AIX 5.x box right now, but a FreeBSD 4.11
box I have around here has an /etc/login.conf file wherein there are
attributes for various classes of users as to the cputime, datasize,
stacksize, memoryuse, openfiles, vmemoryuse and other similar knobs.

So, I would need to ask you if the problem is that your user is running
into a problem with allocating an additional 32MB because that user is
running close the the per-user limits imposed by the defaults set by
your administrator.
