Hi!

Today, I started to write some Ruby code. In my little script, I call 
another one using system(). After extending my Ruby script, the called 
program failed because of insufficient memory. I commented out some 
variable assignments and it worked again. It's reproducable that the 
existence of a couple of (basic) Ruby commands leads to insufficient memory.

Is this a bug or a feature? ;)
What are possible solutions?

ruby 1.8.2 (2004-12-25) [i386-mswin32]

Thanks a lot

Martin
