On a 32bit platform a single process cannot allocate more than 4GB so
I guess you've been hit by that limit somehow. You will need a 64bit
architecture in order to address memory beyond 4GB. We haven't tested
this but if you were using a 64bit platform GIMP-1.3 should allow you
to extend the tile cache beyond 4GB even.
