I put a value of ca. 1.5 GB into the loader's config file
and that solved the problem. Thanks!

Allthough fsck_ffs 5 does seem to be able to calloc() the needed
memory, it fails with the same message as fsck_ffs 7:

        fsck_ffs: bad inode number 306176 to nextinode

Don't know what to do next. I may gather all information I
have, write al little "story" and bring this topic up here
next week. Maybe someone has better ideas than me.
