[Rd] gcinfo/R_alloc inconsistency
Thu, 27 Apr 2000 12:00:23 -0700 (PDT)
gcinfo reports the amount of remaining heap using
vcells = R_VSize - (R_VTop - R_VHeap);
but R_alloc tests
if (R_VMax - R_VTop < size)
This means that you can get an out of memory error when gcinfo insists
there are vast amounts of memory left.
