Is this any trace? It looks like it's trying to allocate over 1Gb of memory which is somewhat peculiar.

However I did just fix a different issue with the trace display which may be related. It too was causing periodic crashes, so please try compiling the latest source out from subversion. Specifically it's revision 2413 to file src/gap4/tman_interface.c:

http://staden.svn.sourceforge.net/viewvc/staden?view=revision&sortby=date&revision=2413

I don't see how this would manifest itself as the memory allocation issue you see, but it's worth trying to see if this is the same issue. Perhaps it's simply allocating more stack space.
