I ran into exactly the same problem last year---it was a right pain in
the neck.  I attributed it to the SVD routine, something would not
release a chunk of memory which, I recall, is about the size of the
matrix supplied to svd; does  splitstat  use svd?  I did not report it
at the time because I could not get it to occur out of the context of
my program!  I would certainly like the problem fixed though.
