I have committed a new version of the lme4 package to the SVN archive.
 It must be compiled for a recent version of R-devel (SVN r40844 or
later).  The lmer2 function in this version should use less memory.
In particular if you add the optional argument model = FALSE (poor
choice of name but it was chosen for compatibility with lm) then the
model.frame is not stored in the returned object, making it smaller.
The optimization of the deviance is performed internally in C code
resulting in fewer memory allocations.
