I can confirm the above.
This was also true with MC : I remember delivering a large
standalone to a client, and carefully setting the memory
allocation for MacOS 9 so that it could run easily, and my
client wasn't even able to launch it on a powerbook G3...
After checking my app, I realized that it didn't used the
memory size I allocated, but instead used a large portion
of the available RAM...

As for my problem with the crashed stack, thank you all
for the proposed solutions, but as I had a backup I made
shortly before the crash, I don't really need to open it at
all cost...
I just wanted to point out that it was the major problem
I had with Rev in 1 month (read : need re-install the app)
and that it crashed the revonline stack also...
