I have 2GB installed on my windows XP box running R 1.9.0, and after
performing a prune.tree(intree,newdata), I get an out of memory error within
R, but it says the maximum allowed is 1024gb (1/2 of what I have!)  Can R
not use more than 1GB on an XP box?  I noticed I had ~600mb left over after
R conked out, so clearly I had more memory...  What about virtual memory?
