My bad - that should have been:

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

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 ... 
see your email for the link

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.

another thought ... might be worth it to have a quick look at latest 
Coverity scan results. I've not looked so your mileage may vary

BTW, the render abort you experience is probably due to an excessively 
large chunk of memory being passed from one of the render threads to the 
front end.

You might want to try the newest version from the "master" branch; I'm 
quite sure it fixes your issue.
