#28 Crash JVM when handling large documents

I have a 3.5 megabyte DocBook document being
transformed by Norm Walsh's stylesheets. Transforming
this document causes an error so serious that it
crashes the java virtual machine. This is 100%
repeatable.

I am using 6.4.3, but saw the same problem under 6.2.2
I am using Sun's 1.3 VM.
I am on a win2k box.

Enclosed is the source file which caused the crash. I
can provide the stylesheets, or you can find them at
docbook.sourceforge.net

    Can't find the source file attached, could you send it
    directly?

    In general there's not much I'm likely to be able to do,
    even if I can repeat it. I have once or twice succeeded in
    locating the line of code that was causing a JVM crash, and
    circumventing it by arbitrary changes to the code, but it's
    not easy.
