This must be something deep in the bowels of the POVMS message-passing 
code; can you try the following - in source/base/povmscpp.cpp, replace all

     throw POV_EXCEPTION_CODE(pov_base::kFileDataErr)

with

     throw POV_EXCEPTION_CODE(pov_base::kFileDataErr, "FUBAR: ###")

where ### is different for each instance (ideally the line number), then 
compile & try again, and report which line claims the jackpot?


What are your system specs?

That's a 64 bit machine AFAIK; otherwise my first suspect would have 
been /some/ variable /somewhere/ with just 32 bit where 64 bit would 
have been required for whatever you're doing there.

error: macro "POV_EXCEPTION_CODE" passed 2 arguments, but takes just 1

My bad - that should have been:

     throw POV_EXCEPTION(pov_base::kFileDataErr, "FUBAR: ###")

This run got a little farther .... used +am3 aa depth +r5

Rendered 553984 of 705600 pixels (78%)
Belch: 1494
Rendered 555008 of 705600 pixels (78%)
Fatal error in renderer: Frontend halted render.
Render failed

btw: amd x2 250 is 32-bit dual core ... fwiw: 3.1.10-1.29-desktop kernel 
opensuse 12.1

Duh.. sure it's 32 bit? All I can find on the 'net says that it must be 
either an "AMD Athlon 64 x2", or an "AMD Athlon x2" - but the latter is 
a 64-bit thing, too. Even the notebook variant is.

Still, you're possibly running a 32-bit OS on it, so that brings integer 
size issues back on the list of suspects.

Still doesn't make much sense to me. Mind e-mailing the complete scene + 
all render settings? (See the dev newsgroup for my e-mail address).

a little bit too big to email ~15MB, so I put it on my wiki testbed ...

Thanks, but I guess I've nailed down the culprit already - after 
accidently getting my Windows system into swap hell by "nothing more" 
than cranking up the AA mode 3 quality settings (something like +am3 
+ac0.999 +a0.001 +r9). The quality settings shouldn't have any effect on 
the memory consumption during AA mode 3, but obviously they do.

That was the clue I needed. Turned out to be a stupid bug, actually.
