[developers] memory issues in [incr tsdb()]

I keep running into:

Error: An allocation request for 16 bytes caused a need for 122159104 more
       bytes of heap.  The operating system will not make the space 
       because of a lack of swap space or some other operating system 
       limit or memory mapping collision.
  [condition type: STORAGE-CONDITION]

whenever I try and do an automatic update of a tree in [incr tsdb()] on 
a 32-bit system. I thought it was because I was running out of memory on 
my system and so switched to a different system but it still happens 
when I have plenty of memory, I'm not even hitting swap. Incidently, it 
doesn't happen when I switch to a 64-bit machine, but that causes other 
issues. I've trawled the archives looking for solutions but maybe I've 
missed something? Is there any variable (environment, [incr tsdb()], 
etc) that I can set to stop it crashing?
