Yes, I do , but this particular error never gets into my custom handler.
I have also set it so that fatal errors fall through, and that doesn't seem to make any difference (again, probably because it never gets there).

Hi all,
I've been chasing around a memory allocation error for some time and can't
figure it out.  It is somewhat random - I can run the script 3 times and
then it will happen, or sometimes the first time.

It happens at the very end of a script, actually after the script has
finished running.  I will see the following after the closing</html>  tag:

Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 268435456 bytes exhausted (tried to
allocate 494142432 bytes) in Unknown on line 0

Just previous to this my mem usage is 3772104

The script itself does some database work (deletes, inserts, selects) but
nothing very heavy and writes out an XML file.  I use adodb 5.18, the
server is PHP 5.3.18 (this was updated recently) and it is a VPS on

As you can see, the memory limit is 256M so it's really high and I never
see that I'm using more than 4M.  The error doesn't fall through my error
class - I'm assuming that's because it is happening after the script is

I am completely out of ideas on how to trap it or figure it out.
Any ideas would be appreciated!
