I've had ugly crashes with large or complex arrays (that weren't 
anywhere near the 4G limit). There are (or perhaps were - this may 
have been fixed in the 8.x cycle) some problems with the way such 
arrays were structured in memory, IIRC.

Which engine version are you using? (Apologies if you already said 
that and I missed this.)
