I've got a problem with fsck_msdosfs. My FAT32 drive came up with errors

fsck_msdosfs manually. However, fsck_msdosfs fails:
# fsck_msdosfs /dev/ad3s1
** Phase 1 - Read and Compare FATs
No space for FAT (Cannot allocate memory)#
I've tried googling for it and I can't find anything other than a bug
being mentioned/filed for netbsd which is obviously related, but no fix
Does anyone have any ideas how I can proceed?
Are you still in single user mode at this point?
Well, I was.
I have made a tiny bit of progress - I edited /etc/fstab and turned the
fsck at boot time off for that drive, so I can boot normally now, just
without that drive mounted. However, I still get the same error message
I am able to run top at the same time, as as far as I can tell, it
doesn't actually run out of memory - Mem has ~564k free, and Swap has
158mb free at its lowest when fsck_msdosfs is running. It's an old
machine, with 192mb ram, and 359mb swap.
