[ferret_users] memory problem on Mac

Dear Ferreters,

I am using Ferret v5.70 on Mac OS X 10.3.
Although 4.5 GB physical memory is installed in my Mac,
I have a trouble about memory when I tried to allocate much memory
(ex. 500 Mega word = 2GB) as following.

        FERRET v5.70 (alpha)
        Mac OS X 10.3.4 - 10/08/04
        26-Jan-06 17:25

yes? set memory/size=500
Cached data cleared from memory
*** malloc: vm_allocate(size=2000003072) failed (error code=3)
*** malloc[2950]: error: Can't allocate region
Unable to allocate 500.000000 Mwords of memory.
Restoring previous memory of 6.400000 Mwords.

Also, in the same Mac,
Ferret can allocate 400 Mega word memory.

Is there any advises or comments?

Thank you,

Hiroyuki Tomita
