The purpose was that a few applications were crashing randomly, and
fsck was one of them. Since I thought 90 MB was far more than enough
to complete the operation, it was what I did...

Okay, I understand.

Remember that the fsck is on a vfat file system. If you want to
reproduce it, build a 250GB vfat file system with 35000 files with
850MB and try it. As I also stated in other email of this thread, I
have a openSUSE 11.0 x86_64 with 256MB of RAM that does not crash (
mainly for rsyncd ).I was just trying to identify a BUG that, it

Sorry, I missed that. Well, it sounds like a filesystem problem to me -
it's interesting that there would be such an enormous difference in
fsck though. I wouldn't expect many developments in vfat, are the two
fsck versions the same?
