Hmm, I'm guessing you are on an 64bit system; if so, and you are running
the release version of sparse (v0.4.4 Nov 2011), I would clone the sparse
repo  and build from source. There have been many improvements to the
64bit support since the last release (I hear it was unusable). [Note: I
can't confirm that - I'm currently stuck on 32bits!]

dormant for quite some time, but sprang to life again last week).
