I've got 196 megs with 20 megs alone allocated to Rev. I wasn't getting
the crash in Rev 1.1, so I don't think RAM is the problem.

I routinely run both at the same time. Since my full license is for
MetaCard, I use Rev as an auxilliary system in order to work with
clients who are using it, or (mostly) to reference the dictionary
because it is so much better than MetaCard's. So it's important to me
that the dictionary doesn't crash.

I heard recently that on MacOS it is sometimes detrimental to allocate
too much RAM to MC/Rev. Maybe I'll take it back down a notch and see
what happens.
