RE: 'Needed to allocate blacklisted block at 0x829d000' ?????

I believe the intent is for a gcj program to be able to grab as much memory
as possible, at least by default.  The collector is more or less capable of
that.  In the current default configuration, things actually deteriorate a
little starting at a 64MB heap, and I believe there is a hard limit at
around 1.5GB for a 32 bit machine.  At least the first of those numbers
should and could be significantly larger without much cost; I've just been
delinquent about updating them in the last few years, though I will soon.
You currently need to build with -DLARGE_CONFIG to increase those numbers.

Allocating 30K doubles means you need a contiguous 240KB.  Under Linux/X86,
I believe that's usually not an issue, but for architectures with large
mostly empty stack frames, it might be.  If it's a single array, the warning
is benign anyway, and I wouldn't worry about it either way.

Can you compile your program with -g and look at the result under gdb?  It's
probably easiest to attach to the program after it hangs, and then look at
the stack trace.  It would be really useful to see a stack trace.
