while trying to express certain group elements in terms of generators, i
recieved the message

gap: cannot extend the workspace any more

i get the same message if i run

gap -m 126M


gap -m 125M

causes no problems. this is on an IBM RS/6000 running AIX with 5GB of
memory, almost all unused.

on two neighboring linux machines,

gap -m 800M


gap -m 500M

work just fine (they each have maybe 50M more than the amount i tried
asking for.)

the only thing i found anywhere in the documentation about memory problems
like this said to link statically - but there were no instructions on how
to do this. we tried putting a -static flag in makefile in the
bin/rs6000-ibm-aix-gcc directory, but it didn't help.

any suggestions?
